Bayer Leverkusen star Toni Kroos and Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Mueller have both been included in the Nationalelf squad and could make their official debut for Germany's senior side.
"Both players have impressed with a string of good performances at their respective clubs. They have deserved this chance following their superb form in the past couple of months," said Loew in a press conference.
Werder Bremen keeper Tim Wiese was initially part of the squad as well, but the Werder shot-stopper was forced to withdraw due to injury. Hamburger SV midfielder Marcell Jansen is doubtful due to injury, too.
