Notes

Thursday, 23 August 2001 - Germany manager Rudi Völler named a 21-man squad to face England on Saturday, 1 September at Munich's Olympiastadion in a World Cup 2002 preliminary match that is critical for both sides.

Tuesday, 28 August 2001 - Mehmet Scholl, the main creative force in Germany's midfield, withdrew from the squad because of an inflamed tendon in his foot.  The same problem kept him out of the German side that beat Hungary in a friendly in Budapest on 15 August and the FC Bayern München AG team that lost to Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup in Monaco on 24 August.

Tuesday, 28 August 2001 - Struggling centre-forward Oliver Bierhoff moved from AC Milan to AS Monaco.  Bierhoff had lost his starting place in both the Milan and German national sides.  He recently offered to resign as Germany's captain, and retired German defender Lothar Mathäus suggested he retire from international play before next year's World Cup final tournament.  Bierhoff, who ended a scoring drought with a goal scored as a substitute in Germany's 15 August victory against Hungary, is much more likely to regain a starting place with Monaco.  Germany manager Rudi Völler has said only players who regularly start for their club sides will be named to Germany's squad for next year's World Cup final tournament.
