Sane hobbled off the pitch but suffered no lasting injuries, and his manager suggests the winger was fortunate not to suffer any broken bones.

“It was a vicious foul,” said Low.

“Sane was lucky and got away with not getting hurt but such fouls can break bones.”

Leon Goretzka came off the bench to equalise as Germany snatched a 1-1 draw in Wolfsburg.

Low’s new-look side, who begin their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign against Holland this weekend, needed time to warm up after falling behind to a 12th-minute Luka Jovic header.

It was not until the second half that Germany began to threaten regularly and Goretzka levelled on 69 minutes after combining with fellow substitute Marco Reus.
