Depleted Germany Lose Sick Werner for Argentina Friendly


RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner became the latest player to be ruled out of Germany’s friendly with Argentina, prompting coach Joachim Loew to call for reinforcements on Monday.

Loew added Hoffenheim midfielder Sebastian Rudy and uncapped Freiburg defender Robin Koch to the squad that will host Argentina on Wednesday and then travel to Estonia for a Euro 2020 qualifier four days later.

“I spent my Sunday on the phone and I didn’t receive anything but bad news,” said Loew, who will also be without injured midfielder Ilkay Gundogan for the friendly in Dortmund.

Toni Kroos, Jonas Hector and Matthias Ginter all withdrew from the squad on Sunday, with Schalke’s Suat Serdar summoned as cover.
