The Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid stars are set for a rest in international week, with the hope they will be available for the UEFA Nations League

Marco Reus and Toni Kroos will sit out Germany's friendly match with Russia on Thursday, head coach Joachim Low has confirmed.

Borussia Dortmund forward Reus has a bruised foot and is due to take part in light training with a view to being available for the Nations League meeting with Netherlands on Monday.

Kroos, who is yet to link up with the squad, will be given extra time to rest.

"Marco Reus can't train at the moment and unfortunately he is not available for the game against Russia," Low told a news conference.

"He is scheduled to do light running training on Thursday, but we have to look at it from day to day.

"Toni gets a few days off."
