Bender returns to Germany squad

Germany coach Joachim Low has added Sven Bender to his squad for Tuesday night's World Cup qualifier with Kazakhstan in Nurnberg.

The Borussia Dortmund midfielder, who was part of Low's original squad selection from last Thursday, but withdrew due to flu, will fill in for Bastian Schweinsteiger, who picked up a yellow card in the 3-0 win over Kazakhstan on Friday night, earning a suspension.

Bender has just three caps, but can expect a fourth on Tuesday night due to a shortage of options in the defensive midfield.

The condition of Julian Draxler is also being monitored after he left the field due to concussion, being replaced by Lukas Podolski, who could therefore start the reverse fixture.

Meanwhile, striker Mario Gomez remains a doubt after missing out due to a thigh strain he picked up in training, leaving Low still without a recognised striker in his squad.

"The important thing is our attacking midfielders push up into that position," Low told ZDF television. "It worked quite well."
