World Cup Goal Hero Gotze Won't Repeat The Feat!

World Cup-winning goalscorer Mario Gotze has been left out of Germany's squad for June's tournament in Russian Federation.

Goalkeepers Manuel Neuer and Nils Petersen made it into the provisional squad whereas midfielder Mario Goetze and striker Sandro Wagner have not been included.

"To work with the best players in Germany, then develop them and to make them better, to form a team that sets the highest goals, this is what drives and still gives me joy".

The 58-year-old was appointed by the national team in 2006 and led Germany to World Cup glory in Brazil four years ago, a 7-1 demolition of the hosts in the semi-final the highlight.

Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen is rewarded for a fine goalscoring season in the Bundesliga, but there is no place for Bayern's Sandro Wagner.

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. A further five players from overseas - Real Madrid's Toni Kroos, Juventus' Sami Khedira, Paris Saint-Germain's Kevin Trapp and Julian Draxler and Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen - also made the cut.

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.

Germany's first match in Russian Federation will be against Mexico in Moscow on June 17.
