The German Football Association said the 28-year-old had left the team’s hotel in Belfast to return to Manchester City.
“Ilkay Gundgoan has been diagnosed with a cold and will not be available on Monday. The midfielder has left the team hotel in Belfast to return home,” the DFB wrote on Twitter.
Michael O’Neill’s side have given themselves a good chance of qualifying for Euro 2020 by winning all four of their opening Group C fixtures so far.
