Shortly after the team-sheets were released ahead of Saturday's friendly against the USMNT, the German FA confirmed that Bayern midfielder Joshua Kimmich was back en-route to Germany.

Already ruled out of Julian Nagelsmann's debut match as German Bundestrainer, German national team midfielder Joshua Kimmich will remain unavailable to Nagelsmann against Mexico on Tuesday night as well. The German FA confirmed that Kimmich - grappling with the effects of a flu-like infection - was headed back to Munich on Saturday to continue his recovery in Germany.

Nagelsmann's starting XI in the Saturday exhibition against the United States featured Ilkay Gündogan and Pascal Groß paired together in midfield. Kimmich's Bayern teammate Leon Goretzka - recalled to the team by the newly appointed Nagelsmann - began the game on the bench. Bayern face FSV Mainz 05 next Saturday at the MEWA Arena when Bundesliga play resumes.
