Not everyone is happy that former first-choice Germany goalkeeper Rene Adler will complete his comeback after more than two years out by lining up against France on Wednesday. Adler will start the friendly game in Paris in place of current No. 1 Manuel Neuer after Germany coach Joachim Loew decided to reward the 28-year-old Adler for his impressive performances for Hamburger SV this season. Neuer says he's happy to sit on the bench, ''but at the right time.'' Adler, who last played for Germany on Nov. 17, 2010, says he's only concentrating on enjoying the game and ''anything after that is pushed out of my head.'' Adler was forced out of the 2010 World Cup with a rib injury and missed last season following right knee surgery.
