- Germany host Slovakia in Euro 2016 warm-up.
- Brandt, Kimmich, Weigl and Sane set to feature.
- Löw required to submit final 23-man Euro squad by 31 May.
Some of the Bundesliga's most exciting young talents have one last chance to impress Germany head coach Joachim Löw in Sunday's Euro 2016 warm-up against Slovakia (kick-off:17:45CEST/15:45GMT).
Uncapped trio Julian Brandt (Bayer 04 Leverkusen), Joshua Kimmich (FC Bayern München) and Julian Weigl (Borussia Dortmund) are all expected to feature at some point in Augsburg, before Löw cuts his team down to the final 23 after naming a provisional 27-man squad earlier this month.
"The youngsters have all made a real impression on me," Löw said ahead of Sunday's clash with fellow Euro 2016 participants Slovakia. "They're all technically gifted and all bring their own strengths to the table. They're keen learners and not afraid to ask questions. [..] Even if one or two don't make the squad for the Euros, we'll definitely see them in the international fold again soon."
Another young Bundesliga star hoping to make the grade is FC Schalke 04 midfielder Leroy Sane. The 20-year-old, who only made his international debut last November, registered eight goals and six assists in the Bundesliga in 2015/16 and will be rewarded with "at least a 45-minute run-out" against Slovakia.
Löw also confirmed that Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno will be handed his senior debut ahead of FC Barcelona counterpart Marc-Andre ter Stegen, with first-choice stopper Manuel Neuer one of a handful of 2014 World Cup winners set to sit the game out.
"Bernd Leno will start in goal," he explained. "Marc-Andre ter Stegen will play in the second half. [Mats] Hummels, [Karim] Bellarabi, Manuel Neuer, [Marco] Reus, Mesut Özil and Thomas Müller haven't made the trip. I'll decide who'll captain the side on Saturday."
