Germany coach Joachim Low admits that he will make some changes against Sweden tomorrow night, but not a complete overhaul.

Germany coach Joachim Low has admitted that he will use tomorrow night's final World Cup qualifier with Sweden to give fringe players a chance, but remains adamant that he is motivated to win.

Low's side secured their place in next summer's finals with a 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland last Friday, with Sami Khedira, Mesut Ozil and Andre Schurrle all on the scoresheet.

Ahead of tomorrow's trip to Solna Low has revealed that he may give Mario Gotze a chance to impress against the Swedes, but rejected notions that he will make wholesale changes.

He told reporters at a pre-match press conference: "It's not going to be eight positions because it's important that we maintain a certain rhythm now, but I think I will test in the next three games, Tuesday and the two in November.

"Sweden still need a point to be one of the top four second-placed sides, who are seeded [for the playoffs], and we go into the game wanting to win. We have won eight out of nine and now we want to win the 10th game so we do have motivation.

"Gotze is an option for both. He could start, but he could start on the bench. We know he's not ready for a full 90 minutes as he's had very little match practice and rarely played 90 minutes in recent months."

Max Kruse and Sidney Sam are among the squad players hoping to start in Sweden, while Per Mertesacker is doubtful with a cold.
