Germany call up Bender for friendly

Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Lars Bender has been called up by Germany coach Joachim Low for Tuesday friendly against Poland.

Low has decided to rest some of Germany's key players following Friday's 6-2 Euro 2012 qualifying victory over Austria and turn to his fringe players for the match in Gdansk.

It's the first time Bender, 22, has been included into the national squad.

Low was down to only 18 players after opting to do without Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Oezil, Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer - also of Bayern.
