Germany coach Joachim Low invited four newcomers into his squad for next week’s friendly international against Sweden.
Mesut Oezil and Philipp Lahm were left out in agreement with their clubs, as well as Thomas Mueller of Bayern Munich.
The four newcomers picked Thursday are midfielder Mario Goetze and defender Marcel Schmelzer of Borussia Dortmund, and midfielders Andre Schuerrle and Lewis Holtby of Mainz.
Striker Miroslav Klose and defender Holger Badstuber, both of Bayern Munich, are out with injuries.
Low also picked two more players form Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund, defender Mats Hummels and midfielder Kevin Grosskreutz, both of whom have made one previous appearance for Germany.
“The match in Sweden is a good opportunity to give a chance to some players who are still developing,” Low said. “They have recommended themselves by playing constantly well in the Bundesliga and are likely to move up to the international level in the near future.
