Low denies disrespecting England

Joachim Low will hand a host of fringe players an "acid test" against England after rejecting claims his much-changed Germany line-up is a mark of disrespect.

It's certainly an extraordinary match: Wembley is a mythical place, so we're raring to go.

What better test for these upcoming players than to go out in front of that partisan 80,000 crowd cheering their own team on.

I need to experiment a bit and send a few players home who are already established.

It is a deliberate acid test, not a "B team", and this is certainly no lack of respect to our hosts.

In 2008 in Berlin, England played a team without Rooney, Lampard and Gerrard and beat us 2-1.
