CONFIRMED: Germany line-up v Ireland - United and Chelsea target start

Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea transfer targets both start.

Germany: Neuer, Rüdiger, Hummels, Boateng, Durm-Ginter, Kroos-Bellarabi, Götze, Draxler-Müller

Jorgi Low’s Germany have been inconsistent since they won the World Cup over the summer.

Their victory in the final against Argentina has been followed by a poor run of results which has seen two defeats in the last threw with losses at the hands of Argentina in a friendly and away to Poland as they try to qualify for Euro 2016.

Germany are missing key players with Arsenal duo Per Mertesacker and Mesut Ozil unavailable. The defender has retired from international football while Ozil will be out of action until deep into the winter because of injury.

However, despite those negatives it’s a great chance for other players to step up and make their performances count with Chelsea star Andre Schurrle a good example of a player who has excelled for both club and country over the last 12 months although he misses out this evening with flu.
