Germany striker Miroslav Klose will start Sunday's friendly against Uruguay in Hoffenheim's Rhein-Neckar Arena. Joachim Low's men face their fellow World Cup 2010 semi-finalists in a warm-up for the upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Austria and Azerbaijan.
According to reports from Sportinformationdienst, Klose will line-up as the lone striker from the start, with his team-mate and Bundesliga top scorer Mario Gomez entering the fray after the first-half.
The report also suggests that Christian Trasch will line-up in central midfield alongside Toni Kroos as Low is without injured trio Sami Khedira, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Sven Bender. Andre Schurrle will play down the right-hand side after his excellent form for Mainz.
However, Borussia Monchengladbach's in-form attacker Marco Reus is set to miss the game in Sinsheim. Reus, whose goal in the play-off against Bochum secured Bundesliga football for Gladbach, will have to wait to make his debut as he is suffering from a muscle strain.
There is better news for Low concerning Koln striker Lukas Podolski, who will operate on the left-hand side of Germany's midfield after shaking off an ankle problem, which forced him to miss yesterday's training session.
