  • Neuer among four keepers in Germany's World Cup squad Wagner & Gotze left out

Four players will be cut from the squad before the finals begin. However, the Bayern Munich goalkeeper will be monitored during the training camp, reports Xinhua news agency.

Goalkeepers Manuel Neuer and Nils Petersen made it into the provisional squad whereas midfielder Mario Goetze and striker Sandro Wagner have not been included. "We saw that we're not as good as we're always told we are - and perhaps some of us think we are".

Midfielders: Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Draxler (Paris Saint-Germain), Leon Goretzka (Schalke), Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City), Sami Khedira (Juventus), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Mesut Oezil (Arsenal), Sebastian Rudy (Bayern Munich).

Gotze was the 2014 World Cup hero as he came on as a substitute and scored in the 113th minute of the final against Argentina.

Robinson Cano Suspended 80 Games For Positive PED Test
The timing of the suspension comes on the heels of Cano suffering the first significant injury of his tenure in Seattle. Due to the suspension, he will be ineligible to play in the postseason if Seattle should make the playoffs.

Mario Gomez could add to his 73 caps in Russian Federation, having previously played in Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012 and Euro 2016.

However, there was no place in the squad for Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi, who was part of the World Cup-winning squad in 2014 and has 20 global caps.

Neuer's Bayern team-mate Sandro Wagner has missed out - the striker's decision to leave Hoffenheim in January to play second fiddle to Robert Lewandowski at the Allianz Arena ultimately backfiring as Low selected uncapped Frieburg forward Nils Petersen. Dortmund winger Marco Reus has a spot in the extended squad after missing out on the victorious 2014 World Cup squad after tearing ankle ligaments in a warm-up game.

Die Mannschaft will take on Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in an intriguing looking Group F in Russian Federation.
