Reus, Neuer on Loew's list for World Cup

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

Loew's chosen squad came with a number of surprises, as he made a decision to include Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, although he isn't ready yet, as some press reports said that he's not fully recovered from the injury he had suffered last September. Neuer hasn't played since September because of a hairline fracture in his left foot. "And after the training camp we want to talk fair and square".

An enviable array of attacking options is enhanced by Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus, whose extensive catalogue of fitness problems served to rule him out of both Euro 2016 and the previous World Cup.

Loew took over after the 2006 World Cup in Germany and has led his country to at least the semi-finals in all of the five major tournaments for which he has been at the helm.

The 32-year-old could make a high-profile return in Bayern's DFB-Pokal showdown with Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, while Germany have scheduled pre-tournament friendlies against Austria and Saudi Arabia.


Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos and Bayern Munich trio Mats Hummels, Thomas Mueller and Jerome Boateng are part of Germany's 27-man provisional list for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

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

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