On Wednesday, the tactician announced his squad for Die Mannschaft's upcoming matches against France and Peru.

Midfielder Sami Khedira was one of the big exclusions from Low's team, and the boss has explained that he wants to give younger players a chance to play in that specific position for Germany instead.

"I talked a lot with Sami," Low said, according to Calciomercato.

"He told me he does not want to leave the national team but I also reiterated that I wanted to create space in his position, that I wanted to try a couple of young players.

"We will resume the speech in due course, he has set himself clear objectives and will do everything to return to play with us."
