MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany - Germany host Cameroon in their second-last World Cup warm-up game today with head coach Joachim Loew missing several first-choice stars.

Germany captain Phlipp Lahm, who is nursing an ankle knock, and goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who has a shoulder injury, both sit out the Moenchengladbach match.

The Bayern Munich pair have both only been able to take a limited part in the pre-World Cup camp since picking up knocks in the German Cup final a fortnight ago.

"We don't want to take any risks with Lahm and Neuer will also not play," said Loew.

"Marcel Schmelzer and Bastian Schweinsteiger should be available and I'll try and make the most of the substitutions."

The 28-year-old Neuer is expected to play in Germany's final friendly against Armenia in Mainz next Friday before the squad flies to Brazil.

In Neuer's place against Cameroon, Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller, 33, will deputise.
