Draxler to Miss Germany Nations League Match Against Netherlands
Midfielder Julian Draxler will not join the rest of Germany squad for their last Nations League game against Netherlands.
Draxler had been included by coach Joachim Low but missed their friendly win over Russia as he was granted compassionate leave.
Nations League relegation rounds off an atrocious year for Low’s Germany, who flopped badly at Russia 2018 with a dire World Cup title defence.
And Germany have now announced Draxler will not join the rest of the squad for Monday’s match against Ronald Koeman’s men in Gelsenkirchen.
However, Low has been boosted by Marco Reus returning to training with the team on Saturday, the playmaker having sat out the 3-0 defeat of Russia.
Borussia Dortmund captain Reus has been in inspirational form to help his team go top of the Bundesliga, scoring eight goals, including a double in a 3-2 Klassiker win at home to title rivals Bayern Munich last time out.
