Kroos, Mueller in Germany squad

BY foxsports • February 26, 2010

Germany coach Joachim Loew has included Bayer Leverkusen's Toni Kroos and Bayern Munich's Thomas Mueller in the squad for next week's friendly against Argentina.

Loew said Friday that the two young midfielders deserve a first chance with the national team following good performances in the Bundesliga over recent months. Leverkusen heads the table and Bayern is second.

The German football federation said Werder Bremen goalkeeper Tim Wiese is out of next Wednesday's match in Munich with an injury. Hamburg midfielder Marcell Jansen also is doubtful for the game.

The Argentina match will be Germany's last before its World Cup squad is named in May.
