Due to a Real Madrid friendly match in Kuwait, the two stars are set to turn up five days after the rest of the squad, who will be preparing for this summer's tournament

Mesut Ozil and Sami Khedira will arrive at Germany's Gdansk training camp late due to a Real Madrid friendly in Kuwait which clashes with the nation’s preparations for the European Championships.

The rest of the side are meeting on May 20, whereas Ozil and Khedira will join their team-mates five days later due to Madrid's game on May 16.

But team manager Oliver Bierhoff has accepted Real's decision.

"We must accept the decision of Real Madrid. Complaining will not help, we must now make the most out of this situation," the former German international told Kicker.

The two players are contractually obliged to play the friendly match. The same problem has affected Spain and Portugal, who also join up before Real Madrid's friendly.

The European Championships start on the June 8.
