Injured Neuer in Germany's provisional squad, Emre Can left out

FIFA World Cup 2018: Germany announce 27-man squad; Gotze, Can, Mustafi dropped

Emre Can and 2014 Germany's World Cup final hero Mario Gotze have been left out of Germany's preliminary 35-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 32-year-old Neuer suffered a broken bone in his foot and only returned to training days ago but Germany coach Joachim Low made a decision to take four keepers to the training camp in the Italian Alps from May 23-June 5.

"The day the nominations are revealed is always a bit split", Germany coach Joachim Low told reporters, according to the team website. "He knows that. We will see at the end of the month or early June how things look and then we will have an honest discussion".

"We watched [Gotze] this season and we have to say that it wasn't his season", Low said. I think Mario has unbelievable quality.

Germany Squad
Joachim Low has announced his 27 man squad

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. However, he missed out on playing in the 2014 World Cup due to an injury-hit season. He also missed Euro 2016 through injury. "And apart from that he is a very good substitute", Loew said of Petersen.

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. The 30-year-old Wagner has scored 4 goals in his 8 internationals and was part of last year's Confederations Cup-winning team.

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