Germany's Loew to rotate against Chile with 100th win in sight

Low lauds'excellent Stindl after Germany draw

Perhaps the only question facing Low heading into the game against the South Americans is the goalkeeping spot, with question marks over Bernd Leno's shaky performance against the "Socceroos" from Australia. "This experience will be excellent for us, for the players".

With key midfielders Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira among those left at home, Goretzka is already stating his case for a place in the squad for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"I am so happy with how things are going at the moment, but all that matters now is the next game".

Attacker Robbie Kruse impressed off the bench against Germany and may get a start while the likes of Jackson Irvine in midfield and defender Ryan McGowan could come into the XI. Australia conceded quick goals and struggled to retain possession in their 3-2 defeat to Germany, but Ange Postecoglou is unlikely to change the approach.

Along with Germany and Chile, Pool B includes Australia and Cameroon.

Australia grew into a contest starved of quality, as first Tom Rogic curled a free-kick over before Mathew Leckie blazed Gersbach's low cross above the frame of the goal.

"We have a very young squad and we haven't played together that often", Germany midfielder Emre Can said. "If that's his opinion I don't know what he's watching", said Postecoglou.

"The World Cup wining coach saw it differently, so you've got two contrasting opinions".

Veteran Universidad de Chile stopper Johnny Herrera stood in for Bravo in Sunday's 2-0 win over Cameroon in Moscow.

Loew has left several key players, including Manuel Neuer Thomas Mueller and Mats Hummels at home to give them a longer summer break as he looks ahead to their World Cup title defence next year and he is eager to give younger players tournament experience. But that's exactly what we need.

"We can not allow so many mistakes against Chile and we need to be more efficient up front", said Bayern Munich's Kimmich, Germany's first-choice right-back at 22.

Among those set to start on Thursday will be keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Loew said.

A decisive goal was not forthcoming for either side, meaning both teams can still progress having claimed one point from two Group B games, although Germany and Chile - who play later on Thursday - remain favourites to do so.
