The world champions also suffered a scare when Julian Draxler was caught by an elbow to the head during the spicy session at their training camp in Eppan, Italy.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward needed ice-pack treatment before later resuming training.

Die Mannschaft appeared at full tilt over a fortnight before the tournament begins, with players scrapping for squad places ahead of boss Joachim Low trimming three from his initial 27-man party.

And it is perhaps a surprise Joachim Low has banned players from letting off a bit of steam with their wives and girlfriends during Russia 2018.

The Germany boss has also told his stars to stay off social media – but they are allowed to drink.

He is happy for the players to have a glass of wine or a beer before bed.

Low has laid down the law, demanding: “The team is more important than the ego.”

He is confident that skipper Manuel Neuer will be fit to set an example.

The keeper, 32, has not played since September after needing surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot.
