Joachim Low’s Germany side ramped up their preparations ahead of their friendly clash with Spain in Dusseldorf on Friday night.

The likes of Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane, Toni Kroos and Julian Draxlerwere all put through their paces as they trained at the Paul-Janes-Stadion ahead of the mouthwatering clash.

The German players worked through various fitness and ball-related exercises during a relaxed two-hour session on Thursday before Low held a brief team meeting on the pitch.

Friday’s game is the first of two high-profile friendlies with a meeting against Brazil to follow at the Olympiastadion in Berlin on Tuesday.

Two players notably absent from Thursday’s session were Mario Gotze, scorer of the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup final, and Marco Reus, who were both left out of Low’s 26-man squad.

One player who was present for the session was Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who will be looking to stake a claim for the No 1 shirt in Manuel Neuer’s absence.

The Bayern Munich keeper has not been included in the squad due to a broken foot and has not played since September.
