Rohr said the technical crew will announce a list of 28 players in the next couple of weeks.
“In the next couple of weeks we will release a list of 28 players for the friendly games against Poland and Serbia. We still have one or two players that we want to check on before coming out with the (final World Cup) list,” the German coach told Complete Sports.
“Moses Simon has been injured a couple of weeks now and we expect that he will be back in action for his club (Gent of Belgium) this weekend.
“There is also Ezenwa who is injured at the moment but is working hard to be fit.

“The games against Poland and Serbia is a big chance for the new players to show they have what it takes to play for us. As you know the next game will be in May so now is time for everyone who want to go to Russia to prove their quality.
“The two games are also important for us because the last time we played together was in November against Argentina. So, it will be an opportunity to work together again before the World Cup.
“In May, we will release another 30-man list for the other friendly games from which we will draw the final list for the World Cup.”
Three other build-up games against Congo, England and Czech Republic are also lined up for May 28, June 2nd and June 6th respectively.
