Germany coach Joachim Low has included Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones in his squad to face Cyprus and Wales.
The former Eintracht Frankfurt man has been in impressive form this season and has now earned a chance to show what he can do at international level.
"He has performed well in the Bundesliga for weeks and has impressed us with his dynamic style of play," Low commented.
Uncapped Stuttgart defender Serdar Tasci has also been given another chance after being forced to miss earlier matches against Wales and Romania through injury.
Jens Lehmann keeps his place in the squad despite not playing regularly for Arsenal, while Mike Hanke and Oliver Neuville have been recalled after lengthy absences.
Low has been forced to omit injury victims Torsten Frings, Bernd Schneider and Kevin Kuranyi, but with his side already assured of Euro 2008 qualification he has indicated he will be casting his eye over several of the less established players.
Low is already looking ahead to next summer and has said the door is still open for anyone to break into the squad.
"Every one of the players has the chance to catch our eye for the coming months," he added.
"We will be watching carefully to see what level they are at and chatting to all of them."
