Germany head coach Joachim Low is set to recall a number of senior players to the starting XI when his side take on Ukraine in the Nations League on Saturday.

Wanting to give a number of players a rest, particularly those who regularly feature in the Champions League for their clubs, the likes of Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, Timo Werner, Toni Kroos, and Leon Goretzka didn't play a few days ago.

How Portugal and France could line-up in the Nations League

Which footballer has won the most international caps?

All of them are expected to return to take on Andriy Shevchenko's charges this weekend.

Niklas Sule is available for selection after completing a period of self isolation after testing positive for coronavirus, while Mathias Ginter could come into the defence also.

Manuel Neuer will likely return in goal despite Kevin Trappe earning a clean sheet in the narrow 1-0 win over Czech Republic.

Unfortunately for Germany, and Bayern, Joshua Kimmich is set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering an injury in Der Klassiker against Dortmund.

Robin Gosens, Jonas Hoffman, and Benjamin Henrichs are all doubts for this one.
