Jansen and Herrmann added to Germany squad

Germany coach Joachim Low has responded to the losses of Bastian Schweinsteiger to suspension and Julian Draxler to injury by calling up Marcell Jansen and Patrick Herrmann to his squad to face Kazakhstan on Tuesday.

Hamburg's Jansen, whose last international appearance came in September 2010, will provide cover to the defence - where captain Philipp Lahm may well be rested - while Herrmann could pick up his first cap.

The Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder will link up with the senior squad for the first time direct from Israel, where he has been in action for Germany's under-21s.
