GARETH SOUTHGATE has been given a boost after Joachim Low confirmed Germany will be without THREE star players tomorrow.
German boss Low revealed Mesut Ozil, Julian Draxler and Mario Gomez will not feature in the friendly against England.
He said: “Neuer is injured, Ozil has muscular problems, Draxler has a slight muscular problem. Gomez also has a slight injury.
“They won’t play.”
Arsenal star Ozil is still struggling with a hamstring problem that kept him out of the Gunners side that lost 3-1 to West Brom last week.
PSG midfielder Draxler also misses out with a small hamstring problem whileWolfsburg hitman Gomez is recovering from a groin injury.
But Low is sure his German side is strong enough to make sure there is not a repeat of their last clash with England.
The Germans surrendered a two-goal lead to lose 3-2 in a Euro 2016 warm-up game and Low is still wary of the Three Lions counter-attacking ability.
