Arsenal's Mertesacker, new boy Podolski make Germany squad

Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker and new signing Lukas Podolski have both been named in Joachim Low's Germany squad for next month's Euros.

Centre-back Mertesacker had been sidelined with an ankle injury he sustained playing for the Gunners in February but managed to play 90 minutes of the 5-3 friendly loss to Switzerland on the weekend and has been included in Low's 23-man roster.

Joining Mertesacker will be new Arsenal teammate Podolski who signed a deal with the North Londoners in April and will join from Cologne in July.
