After eight-months sidelined by a fractured foot, Manuel Neuer will pull on the Germany No.1 shirt on Saturday when they take on Austria in a rain-hit World Cup warm-up match.Heavy rain in Klagenfurt meant kick-off had to be pushed back by 30 minutes from 1800 (1600 GMT).

The 32-year-old has been capped by his country 74 times, helping the team win the 2014 FIFA World Cup when he was awarded the Golden Glove for being the best goalkeeper of the tournament.

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer catches a ball as hail falls during warmup before a friendly soccer match between Austria and Germany in Klagenfurt, Austria, Saturday, June 2, 2018. They have not won a game since October, drawing with England, France and Spain and losing to Brazil and now Austria since beating Azerbaijan.

"I'll talk to him tonight and if everything is okay, he'll play against Austria".

"After the break, we fell into a pattern which I didn't like at all and we were far too sloppy in our game going forward". Group F also includes Sweden and South Korea.

The controversial incident took place when Mr Duterte was speaking to a crowd of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Seoul. Risa Hontiveros said in a statement that it was "a despicable display of sexism and grave abuse of authority".

Mats Hummels and Thomas Mueller, who are rested, are also being left behind in Eppan by Loew, but for the rest of the 27-man squad this is their last chance to win a place on the plane to Russian Federation.

Austria gifted their bigger neighbours an eleventh minute lead when goalkeeper Joerg Siebenhandl sent a terrible clearance straight to Mesut Ozil who scored from just inside the penalty area. He was only beaten by a Thomas Mueller penalty and a Julian Draxler goal.

The lead was almost doubled 10 minutes later when Julian Brandt was played through on goal, but the forward saw his effort deflect wide of the upright.

At the other end, Neuer made his first save on 16 minutes to deny attacking midfielder Schoepf.

Austria levelled when Hinteregger unleashed an unstoppable volley, direct from a corner, past Neuer unmarked at the back post on 53 minutes.

However, she recently tweeted that she was "working hard" and "feeling great", but some believe that the FLOTUS didn't write it. First Ladies don't just drop out of sight; they go to Memorial Day wreath layings, for example. "She is not going".

The hosts came back well and Neuer made a superb close-range save from Florian Grillitsch just after the half hour.

The game would in defeat for the Germans, a result which Loew will no doubt be hoping gives his charges a kick up the backside ahead of Russian Federation.

"We didn't put into practice what we had planned". We won't fool ourselves.

It was Austria's fifth win in five matches under coach Franco Foda, who took over from Marcel Koller in November after the team failed to qualify for the World Cup.

"If we play like that in Russian Federation, then we have no chance", fumed Germany head coach Loew in Klagenfurt on Saturday.

A president can't obstruct justice? That's not quite right, legal scholars say
A special counsel is investigating Russia's role in the 2016 election, and whether Mr Trump obstructed justice. He went on: "I think the political ramifications of that would be tough".

Germany will be out to defend their title in Russian Federation and will be one of the favourites to lift the trophy, yet they must guard against complacency.
