With key players such as Manuel Neuer, Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry and Timo Werner set to be rested for the upcoming UEFA Nations League games against Ukraine and Spain, Germany coach Joachim Löw will give his second-string a run out in Wednesday's friendly against the Czech Republic in Leipzig.

Löw confirmed on Tuesday that Kevin Trapp, Robin Koch, Antonio Rüdiger and Julian Brandt will all start, and Luca Waldschmidt is likely to be in the line-up as well after being singled out for praise by the Germany coach prior to the game.

Meanwhile, Augsburg's Felix Uduokhai, Wolfsburg's Ridle Baku and PSV's Philipp Max could be in line to make their international debuts, and the latter two are even expected to start on Wednesday since Robin Gosens and Benjamin Henrichs are both struggling with injuries.

Löw will make a late decision on Ilkay Gündogan's involvement, with Mahmoud Dahoud seen as a possible alternative.
