In an unfortunate reminder of the fact that COVID remains relevant in the sporting world, FC Bayern München stars Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka have been sent home from DFB camp after testing positive.

Neuer's replacement has already been confirmed. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim net-minder Oliver Baumann will head to camp to serve alongside back-ups Marc André ter Stegen and Kevin Trapp. The German FA promised that a nomination to replace Goretzka (and possibly others) will come soon.
Both Neuer and Goretzka are reported to be asymptomatic.
