Germany given Timo Werner fitness boost ahead of Nations League game

Timo Werner is set to play for Germany against Switzerland in the UEFA Nations League according to head coach Joachim Low.


The Chelsea striker missed last week's friendly against Turkey and only made a substitute appearance against Ukraine on Saturday evening as Germany won 2-1, due to fitness issues after having flu.


Low has stated that Werner is now fully recovered and is set to start for Germany.


Whilst Werner tested negative for coronavirus, he joined up with the rest of the national team at a later date as a precautionary move to avoid the chance of a spread of infection within the team.


Speaking during the pre-match press conference, Low said "Timo Werner is back to full strength and there are no weaknesses".


He added that "He is available. But we have small question marks. [Julian] Draxler has achilles problems, [Marcel] Halstenberg is dealing with adductors and [Lukas] Klostermann has knee problems."


Apart from Werner, fellow Chelsea team-mates Antonio Rudiger and Kai Havertz are also set to be involved in the game against Switzerland, with Germany chasing a second win in the Nations League.


This will also act as a boost to Frank Lampard and Chelsea, who have shown great faith in Werner, especially with the UEFA Champions League starting next week.
