  • Print

BERLIN - Germany coach Joachim Loew has called up Schalke forward Sidney Sam for a European Championship qualifying match against Scotland.

Loew called up Sam after Germany lost to Argentina 4-2 in a friendly on Wednesday.

Germany will be without Schalke midfielder Julian Draxler as well as Mats Hummels and Mesut Ozil for Sunday's qualifier against Scotland in Dortmund. The German football federation says the three players will stay with the national team for treatment.

The 26-year-old Sam, who joined Schalke from Bayer Leverkusen in the off-season, has made five appearances for Germany but wasn't on Loew's World Cup-winning squad.
