Mario Gomez has pulled out of Germany's upcoming friendly against Italy due to an injury.
The striker had originally been called up for Wednesday night's international test in Dortmund.
He pulled out after picking up a left knee injury while playing for Bayern Munich, but Coach Joachim Loew will not call a replacement.
Cesare Prandelli is set to name his Italy squad for next week's game later today.
