The 32-year-old has been capped 75 times by his country, helping the team win the 2014 FIFA World Cup when he was awarded the Golden Glove for being the best goalkeeper of the tournament.
The 22-year-old winger, who won the Premier League title with Manchester City and was voted young player of the year by the Professional Footballers' Association, didn't make the cut when Joachim Loew reduced his squad to 23 players.
Asked about Sane's omission, Loew said: "It was a very tight decision between him and Julian Brandt (of Bayer Leverkusen) which went in favour of Brandt".
If Germany's offense stutters in Russian Federation, fans are sure to recall Sane's exceptional ability to beat players one-on-one.
Sane has failed to translate his club form to the national team, scoring no goal and getting only one assist in 12 appearances. But while many would have believed it's just a matter of time that Sane, the EPL's fastest player, would excel for his national team, Loew didn't think it would happen in Russian Federation. "But he's not really arrived yet in his games for the national team".
Sane, who joined the English champions in 2016, had been a surprise addition to Germany's Euro 2016 squad two years ago but this time he was overlooked by Loew, who opted to take the more physical Julian Brandt to Russian Federation instead. But Loew denies that there were any off-field issues contributing to his decision leave Sane off the World Cup roster.
Sane missed 2017 Confederations Cup to undergo nasal surgery while Brandt starred for the young German squad that lifted the title. We could not drop a defender to add another attacking player.
Julian Brandt, Leon Goretzka, Jonas Hector, Joshua Kimmich and Marc-Andre ter Stegen were also involved in the discussion at the squad's Italian training base in Eppan. He will be back again from September.
