World Cup 2018: Leroy Sane left out of Germany World Cup squad
Manchester City winger Leroy Sane has been left out of Germany’s final 23-man World Cup squad.
Sane, Bayer Leverkusen pair Bernd Leno and Jonathan Tah and Freiburg striker Nils Petersen were all dropped as Joachim Low cut the defending champions’ 27-man provisional squad.
Keeper Manuel Neuer, who came back after nine months out in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by Austria, is in the squad.
Three Premier League players are selected. Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger, City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan and Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil have all been named in the squad.
Germany are in Group F with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea, and play their first match on Sunday, 17 June.
