Reus and Gomez make Germany comeback

Joachim Low has announced his 21-man squad for the reigning world champions' upcoming game against Argentina and Scotland
Germany coach Joachim Low has included Marco Reus and Mario Gomez in his 21-man squad for the upcoming international friendly against Argentina on and the Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland.

Reus was part of the provisional squad for this summer's World Cup, but was forced to pull out due to injury, while Gomez was left out as Low opted to call up Miroslav Klose as his sole striker.

Both now make their comeback to the national team, though, as the world champions prepare to take on the South Americans on September 3 in a rematch of the final in Brazil, before locking horns with Scotland four days later.

Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski keep their places along with Chelsea striker Andre Schurrle.

The biggest surprise in Low's squad is Stuttgart defender Antonio Rudiger, who is one of the candidates to take Lahm's place at right-back.

Germany are without Philipp Lahm, Per Mertesacker and Klose, who all decided to retire from international duty after this summer's tournament.

Other absentees include Shkodran Mustafi and Bastian Schweinsteiger, who are both not fully match fit.
