Of this squad list, four will be cut for the final group before the World Cup kicks off in June.

Dortmund's midfielder Mario 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.

Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen has proved a reliable deputy since filling in for Neuer, but Germany's depth at other positions was called into question during a 1-0 loss to Brazil in March.

"Then we want to get a full idea, talk to him frankly and honestly, asking 'is it possible to play at the World Cup?'" "He is a great player but he wasn't in form", Leow said.

"From the DFB's perspective, it has been made clear that it was not a good decision, but I didn't think of leaving them out for a second", said Germany head coach Joachim Loew.




Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen received an invitation from the national team after scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

The Borussia Dortmund start scored in extra time against Argentina in 2014 to give Germany its fourth World Cup. 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.

The Premier League is also represented in the squad, with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil joined by Manchester City duo Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane, along with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.

The Germany's captain and goalkeeper, had not played since September and still has to prove his fitness ahead of the June 14 start to the World Cup finals in Russian Federation.
