MOST COMMENTED

[GERMANY] Germany will be without many of its big stars for its trip to the United States to face Ecuador May 29 in Boca Raton, Fla., and the USA June 2 in U.S. Soccer's centennial celebration game in Washington, D.C. German national team coach Joachim Loew's roster includes four uncapped players.

All the German stars on Bayern Munich, and most of the Borussia Dortmund national team players will miss the trip because of the Champions League final May 26.

Real Madrid's Mesut Oezil and Sami Khedira also will miss the trip because the Spanish season won't end until June 1.

The best-known players in the team are Polish-born strikers Miroslav Klose and Lukas Podolski.

Defender Philipp Wollscheid (Nuremberg) and midfielders Sidney Sam (Bayer Leverkusen), Nicolai Mueller (Mainz) and Max Kruse (Freiburg) will be looking for their first caps.

Germany Roster:
Goalkeepers: Rene Adler (Hamburg), Ron-Robert Zieler (Hannover 96), Marc Andre ter-Stegen (Borussia Moenchengladbach).
Defenders: Dennis Aogo (Hamburg), Marcell Jansen (Hamburg), Heiko Westermann (Hamburg), Andreas Beck (Hoffenheim), Benedikt Hoewedes (Schalke 04), Per Mertesacker (Arsenal), Philipp Wollscheid (Bayer Leverkusen).
Midfielders: Sven Bender (Borussia Dortmund), Julian Draxler (Schalke), Roman Neustaedter (Schalke 04), Kevin Grosskreutz (Borussia Dortmund), Aaron Hunt (Werder Bremen), Nicolai Mueller (Mainz 05), Stefan Reinartz (Bayer Leverkusen), Sidney Sam (Bayer Leverkusen), Lars Bender (Bayer Leverkusen), Max Kruse (SC Freiburg).
Forwards: Miroslav Klose (Lazio), Lukas Podolski (Arsenal), Andre Schuerrle (Bayer Leverkusen)

    If I already had a ticket for the US - GER game, I would demand my money back. Unsportsmanlike behavior by the DFB. Or just shortsightedness (with respect to scheduling) by USSF? Anyway, I hope we take this German B-Team apart.
