Germany Drop Sane, Name Ozil, Rudiger, Neuer, Kroos In World Cup Squad

Defending World Champions Germany have announced their 23-man squad for the FIFA World Cup 2018, with the eye-catching news being the axing of Manchester City's Leroy Sane.

The 22-year-old had an outstanding 2017-18 campaign for the Premier League champions - scoring 14 times and registering 19 assists in all competitions for Pep Guardiola's side.

The defending champions, Germany, have named their 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Sane's City teammate, Ilkay Gundogan was, however, included in the team as well as regulars like Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos, Sami Khedira and Jerome Boateng.

The Manchester City winger made the provisional squad but was dropped by coach Joachim Low in favour of Bayer Leverkusen ace Julian Brandt.

DC Films head Geoff Johns just released a Wonder Woman 2 teaser to his Facebook page, as spotted by The Hollywood Reporter . It grossed more than 821 million dollars on a budget of 149 million dollars, breaking records for a female-directed movie.

"Julian Draxler, Marco Reus and Thomas Müller are set. Leroy has a huge talent", Low said at a press conference on Monday, per Metro. He had not arrived in worldwide matches yet. "If it was a 100 metre race, it would have been a photo finish".

It remains to be seen how Leroy Sane reacts to the omission from Low's Germany squad, though smart money would say he'll be a likely starter in 2020, when the Euro's takes place across multiple European cities across the continent.

'It's as if you are stood at the check in desk for your flight to Moscow, but are then prevented from boarding'.

Germany, who have been drawn in Group F alongside Mexico, Sweden and Korea Republic, will face Saudi Arabia in their final preparation game on Friday.
