Neuer in Germany squad, Wagner out

Germany coach Joachim Loew to stay through 2022 World Cup

Germany coach Joachim Loew to stay through 2022 World Cup

In a major surprise, World Cup-winning goalscorer Mario Gotze has been dropped from Germany's squad for the mega event. However, the Bayern Munich goalkeeper will be monitored during the training camp, reports Xinhua news agency.

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper, and Germany number 1 goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer who has been injured for the majority of the season has been assessed by his country's medical staff before the tournament.

Seemingly as a result of Gomez's inclusion Sandro Wagner misses out, despite an impressive season at Bayern Munich.

He took charge following that tournament in 2006 and went on to lead Germany to the final of Euro 2008, where they lost to Spain.

Jerome Boateng is named in the squad despite the centre-back missing the end of the season with a thigh injury, while uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen earns a place after scoring 15 Bundesliga goals last term and Mario Gomez is also included. "And apart from that he is a very good substitute", Loew said of Petersen.

Borussia Dortmund's Mario Gotze, who scored the goal to win Germany the World Cup in 2014, has been omitted by Low. Aside from the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos, Julian Draxler and Mesut Ozil, there are also still places at stake in Germany's midfield - an area of considerable strength.

German soccer federation president Reinhard Grindel criticized both players, who have Turkish roots, for posing for the photos, saying Erdogan's repressive control did not correspond with the values cherished by the DFB or football. Both know that they made a mistake.

Germany are in Group F with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea, and play their first match on Sunday, 17 June.
