MUNICH (AP) - Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will miss Tuesday’s friendly international against Italy because of a stomach bug.

The German football federation says Neuer has been sent home after consultations with team doctors.

The federation did not say who will replace Neuer, who turned 30 on Sunday. But coach Joachim Loew has three more goalkeepers in the squad - rookies Bernd Leno and Kevin Trapp, plus Marc-Andre ter Stegen of Barcelona, who has four caps.

Stand-in captain Sami Khedira, who plays for Juventus, also missed Monday’s training and underwent a recovery session in the team’s hotel.
