BERLIN - Germany reserve goalkeeper Tim
Wiese has left the team before their departure for Azerbaijan
for Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier because of illness in his
family, the national team said on Saturday.
Wiese's exit left coach Joachim Low with just 16 infield
players and two goalkeepers.
Midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger, Christian Trasch and
Sven Bender as well as forwards Miroslav Klose and Marco Reus
have already been ruled out with injuries.
Germany snatched a last minute goal to beat Austria 2-1 in
Vienna on Friday to make it six victories out of six qualifiers
and top Group A with a maximum 18 points.
The 29-year-old Werder Bremen keeper is Low's third choice
behind Manuel Neuer and Rene Adler.
