National team coach Joachim Low has opted not to call up a replacement.

Germany head to Belfast five points clear of second-placed Northern Ireland at the top of Group C. 

Michael O’Neill’s side will be targeting a surprise against Germany as they look to cement a place in the World Cup play-odds at least.

Werner has been struggling for fitness recently and bizarrely asked to be substituted during RB Leipzig’s game with Besiktas recently.

The 21-year-old was seemingly affected by the intense noise inside the stadium and felt dizzy as a result.
