Pick Your Germany Team

Goal.com invites you to pick your Germany team for the Euro 2012 qualifying match against Belgium.
Germany travel to Belgium on Friday night in their first competitive match since the 2010 World Cup and the objective is maximum points against a talented Belgian side.

The Nationalelf will be high on confidence following their good form in South Africa, but Belgium have some promising youngsters with Romelu Lukaku and Kevin de Bruyne and won't be pushovers.

Head coach Joachim Loew opted to leave skipper Michael Ballack out of the squad to give him the chance to further recover from his injury. Additionally, defenders Arne Friedrich and Jerome Boateng were not called up due to injury.

Here is the available squad:


Rene Adler (Bayer Leverkusen), Manuel Neuer (Schalke), Tim Wiese (Werder Bremen)


Holger Badstuber (Bayern Munich), Marcell Jansen (Hamburg), Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich), Per Mertesacker (Werder Bremen), Sascha Riether (Wolfsburg), Heiko Westermann (Schalke)


Sami Khedira (Real Madrid), Toni Kroos (Bayern Munich), Marko Marin (Werder Bremen), Thomas Mueller (Bayern Munich), Mesut Oezil (Real Madrid), Lukas Podolski (Koeln), Bastian Schweinsteiger (Bayern Munich), Christian Traesch (Stuttgart)
