Schurrle & Mertesacker in Germany squad to face England & Italy

The Chelsea midfielder and Arsenal defender have been called up by Joachim Low for the November friendlies, with veteran striker Miroslav Klose making his return
Germany coach Joachim Low has named Andre Schurrle and Per Mertesacker in his squad for the upcoming international friendlies against England and Italy.

Elsewhere, Miroslav Klose makes a return after missing the Nationalelf's last few games due to injury but is set to make his comeback after regaining peak fitness.

Furthermore, Marcel Schmelzer has received a call-up after being forced to miss the World Cup qualifiers against Ireland and Sweden through injury.

Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller could make his debut for Germany's senior side as he replaces Robert Zieler in the 24-man squad.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger misses out as he is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right ankle.

Germany take on Italy on November 15 in Milan, before travelling to London for the game against England four days later.
