Ireland have twice as many substitutes as Germany for tonight's game
We thought we had a problem with squad depth...
We're all very much aware at this stage that Germany have been hit with a host of injuries ahead of tonight's game against Ireland.
That added to the post-World Cup retirements has seen numbers stretched and the bench named by Germany boss Joachim Loew has highlighted the problem.
Two goalkeepers and four outfield players? We guess you can only make three subs but still, this is very unusual...

They surely have more than six players available for the bench?
