Germany's World Cup training is hotting up in more ways than one.
Joachim Low's 23-man squad is filled with talent. We're talking Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil, Leroy Sane and Thomas Muller, among many others.
And his World Cup players have been going through their paces ahead of international friendlies before venturing to Russia.
Austria is up first, then Saudi Arabia.
On Saturday, Germany face Austria with Low's players trying to impress in training for a starting spot.
Antonio Rudiger is eager to make an impression so he gets a spot in Germany's opening starting XI against Mexico.
And his teammates are feeling it.
The Chelsea defender was closely marking Kimmich, which then escalated as the pair went head-to-head, with Miroslav Klose forced to intervene, separating them.
