Pavlovic to miss Germany's games against France and Netherlands

Aleksandar Pavlovic will miss Germany's upcoming friendlies against France and the Netherlands due to tonsillitis.
Aleksandar Pavlovic recently received his first call-up to the German national team for the games against France (Saturday) and the Netherlands (Tuesday).

Unfortunately for the 19-year-old, he is suffering from tonsillitis and won't be able to play in either of these games.

At the moment, Germany coach Julian Nagelsmann has no plans to call up a replacement for the young Bayern midfielder, according to Kicker.

This means that he will have 25 players at his disposal for the two friendlies.

Shortly before Pavlovic's first call-up, it was revealed that he had turned down a request to play for Serbia, who he is also eligible to play for.

Nagelsmann has since insisted that his decision to include Pavlovic in the squad had nothing to do with that, and was based solely on performance.
