STUTTGART, Germany -- Germany will be without defensive midfielder Lars Bender for its friendly against Chile on Wednesday, and striker Miroslav Klose is trying to overcome injury.

Klose has a bruised pelvic bone and abdominal muscle problems but team doctors are trying to get him fit in time for the match. Bender has a hamstring injury.

Germany is already without half-dozen players, due to injury or bad form.

Germany coach Joachim Loew has invited four newcomers -- striker Pierre-Michel Lasogga, midfielders Matthias Ginter and Andre Hahn, and defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Loew said captain Philipp Lahm will be playing in midfield, a role he has been filling at Bayern Munich, with Kevin Grosskreutz likely to play at right back in his return to the national team after three years.
