Manuel Neuer in Germany's 2018 World Cup Provisional Squad, Gotze Misses out

Germany coach Joachim Low, who has an abundance of talent at his disposal, has now announced his provisional squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but snubbed a few big stars, including 2014 final goalscorer Mario Gotze.

"We had to make a decision, and it was made in favour of [Mario] Gomez and Petersen", Low said.

Dortmund's midfielder Mario Goetze, who scored the victor against Argentina in the 2014 World Cup final, will miss the tournament in Russian Federation due to poor performances in the past season.

"We will be open and honest after the training camp, and without match practice, you can't go into a tournament".

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 worldwide 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.

"I know that those players [who missed out] are just very disappointed because they worked hard for it. Sandro has shown his class when with the team".

Loew, whose current deal runs out in 2020, has been in charge for 12 years and in 2014 led Germany to their fourth World Cup title.

The Premier League is also represented in the squad, with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil joined by Manchester City duo Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane, along with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger. A further five players from overseas - Real Madrid's Toni Kroos, Juventus' Sami Khedira, Paris Saint-Germain's Kevin Trapp and Julian Draxler and Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen - also made the cut.

They face Sweden in Sochi six days later before rounding off their Group F campaign against South Korea in Kazan.
