Bayern Munich are sending five players to Jogi Löw’s Germany team during the international break this time. They’ll play the Czech Republic on October 8 in Hamburg and Northern Ireland on October 11 in Hannover.

Manuel Neuer, Mats Hummels, Joshua Kimmich, Jerome Boateng, and Thomas Müller have all been called up to the squad for two important World Cup qualifiers. If Germany can take all six points, they should build a nice lead at the top of the group.

If Löw decides to go with a four man backline, it’s almost a certainty that we see Jonas Hector alongside Hummels and Boateng. The only question is if Löw decides to go with Kimmich or Benedikt Höwedes at right back. I think you may see the manager lean toward Kimmich in large part due to his ability to get up the field into the attack

Several former Bayern players are also in the team including Toni Kroos, Mario Götze, and Mario Gomez.
