Borussia Moenchengladbach's midfielder Marco Reus has pulled out of the upcoming Germany games because of a groin injury.

Reus is the second player to pull out of Joachim Loew's squad for Friday's European Championship qualifying game against Austria and next week's friendly against Poland.

Bayer Munich's striker Mario Gomez is also out with groin problems.

It is the fourth time Reus has been forced to withdraw from the squad with injuries and he remains without a cap.
