The German Football Association (DFB) have announced that Julian Draxler, Leon Goretzka, Manuel Neuer, Marco Reus and Antonio Rüdiger will not travel to Armenia for Germany's final World Cup qualifier on Sunday.


Draxler missed Thursday's 9-0 victory over Liechtenstein due to an muscle injury and will not be fit in time for Sunday's game.

Leon Goretzka suffered a bruise to his head/neck area, and while Germany coach Hansi Flick initially said that he expected the Bayern midfielder to make the trip, he will not be available.

Meanwhile, Antonio Rüdiger will miss the game due to suspension while Neuer and Reus won't travel due to workload management.

Germany already have to manage without Niklas Süle, Joshua Kimmich, Karim Adeyemi, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala (all quarantined) as well as Florian Wirtz and Nico Schlotterbeck (injuries).
