Germany Announce Provisional World Cup Squad, 7 Stars Snubbed

FIFA World Cup 2018: Germany announce 27-man squad; Gotze, Can, Mustafi dropped Low pens new Germany deal drops 27-man provisional WC squad

Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus missed the 2014 tournament in Brazil after sustaining an ankle injury in the team's warm-up win over Armenia.

Neuer who has not played since September 2017 since he suffered a fractured foot had earlier stated that he does not think he will be making the team list for the Mundial.

"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".

Uncapped Petersen is regarded to be a certainty for the final squad of 23 that Loew has to announce on June 4 following the two-week training camp.

However, Loew pulled a surprise by handing a first call-up to Freiburg striker Nils Petersen, 29, the top-scoring German in the Bundesliga this season with 15 goals.

Marco Reus was also selected, but Borussia Dortmund teammate Goetze was left out.

Germany Squad
Joachim Low has announced his 27 man squad

Balotelli has not been called up for Italy since the last World Cup when his attitude was the subject of barely-veiled criticism from some senior players.

"It wasn't his best season".

Meanwhile, German internationals Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan, both of Turkish origin, were accused Monday of having been "manipulated" after posing for photos with Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Grindel struck a more conciliatory note on Tuesday, saying, "People can make mistakes and we have to keep things in perspective".

Germany are drawn in Group F alongside Mexico, Sweden and South Korea at this year's World Cup. "The federation made me understand that they wanted me 100 percent and that made it easy for me to choose", added the former Inter Milan, Manchester City, Galatasaray and Zenit St Petersburg coach.
