Germany vs. Kazakhstan, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Lineups

Germany rebounded nicely from their disappointing draw against Sweden with a 3-0 thumping of Kazakhstan last week. With the venues flipped, the Germans will look to repeat their solid performance and further cement their place at the top of Group C.

Joachim Löw has made a couple changes to his lineup. At the back Jerome Boateng returns in place of Benedikt Howedes. In the midfield, suspended Bastian Schweinsteiger makes way for Ilkay Gundogan and Marco Reus gets the start as well in place of the injured Julian Draxler. Mario Götze and Mesut Özil remain as starters to lead the German attack.

Germany starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; Phillip Lahm, Jerome Boateng, Per Mertesacker, Marcel Schmelzer; Sami Khedira, Ilkay Gundogan; Thomas Müller, Mesut Özil, Marco Reus; Mario Gotze.

Kazakhstan starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Andrey Sidelnikov; Aleksandr Kirov, Mukhtar Mukhtarov, Viktor Dmitrenko, Konstantin Engel; Kairat Nurdauletov, Valeri Korobkin; Mark Gorman, Ulan Konysbaev, Heinrich Schmidtgal; Sergey Ostapenko,
