Werder Bremen goalkeeper Tim Wiese is going to ask Germany coach Joachim Low not to call him up for the upcoming matches against South Africa and Azerbaijan.
Wiese is currently one of three goalkeepers regularly picked by Low for his squad alongside Hannover's Robert Enke and Rene Adler of Bayer Leverkusen. Since the next two international matches will be staged in those cities, Wiese thinks it would be counter-productive for him to play rather than the home fans' favourite.
"If I play, I am going to be jeered for 90 minutes long," he told the Bild newspaper. "I don't want to put myself through that. It's not good to be German and jeered by German fans. The team would also suffer."
Instead, Wiese thinks Adler should keep goal in the friendly with South Africa in Leverkusen's BayArena on 5 September with Enke given the nod for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifier against Azerbaijan four days later in the Niersachsen Stadion.
"I am going to talk to Jogi Low about this," he added.
