Germany reveal provisional squad for 2018 World Cup

Russia 2018 Joachim Low extends contracts with Germany

Low left out midfielder Gotze, who scored the winning goal in the final against Argentina four years ago but has had a lacklustre season. Coach Joachim Loew, who has just signed a 2-year contract extension, has provided a 27-man provisional squad which has left German fans in a state of confusion. However, Bayern's goalkeeper will be monitored during the training camp.

Borussia Dortmund's midfielder 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.

Low said: "Working together with Andy Kopke, Thomas Schneider, Marcus Sorg, Oliver Bierhoff and our entire team behind the scenes, we are working to develop the best players in Germany and make them better, to form a team going for the highest goals in football".

Bayern striker Wagner misses out on the tournament as Loew favoured Stuttgart veteran striker Mario Gomez.

Of this squad list, four will be cut for the final group before the World Cup kicks off in June. "And apart from that he is a very good substitute", Loew said of Petersen.

Manchester City duo Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane are among the Premier League star to be selected, while Liverpool's Emre Can misses out.

Germany face Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in World Cup Group F and will prepare in the Italian Alps from May 23 to June 5 ahead of the tournament in Russian Federation.
