Germany will look to build on Thursday's comfortable 3-0 win over Iceland when they continue their World Cup campaign against Romania in Bucharest on Sunday.


With Toni Kroos, Marcel Halstenberg, Jonas Hofmann and Niklas Süle already ruled out, Germany coach Joachim Löw is set to make a late decision on the involvement of Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sané.

"Leon Goretzka has some calf problems so we’ll have to see how he is tomorrow. Same goes for Leroy Sané’s hamstring, but that looks a little more promising. A decision will not be made until tomorrow in any case," said Löw at the pre-match press conference on Saturday.

Here's how Germany's starting eleven could look:

Manuel Neuer

Lukas Klostermann
Matthias Ginter
Antonio Rüdiger
Emre Can

Joshua Kimmich
Ilkay Gündogan
Florian Neuhaus

Leroy Sané
Kai Havertz
Serge Gnabry
