Germany tackle Ukraine side depleted by Covid-19 cases

Germany coach Joachim Low has recalled his Bayern Munich contingent of Manuel Neuer, Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich and Serge Gnabry, and Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos, for their Nations League meeting with Ukraine.

Forward Timo Werner is also back. Germany has drawn its last three games and Low was particularly aggrieved to concede a last-minute equalizer against Turkey in their 3-3 result on Wednesday.

Low’s team was leading three times but lacked the concentration to hold out for the win. A Ukraine side depleted by coronavirus cases and injuries lost to France 7-1 in Paris on Wednesday, but coach Andriy Shevchenko is hoping some of his Shakhtar Donetsk players return for Germany.
