Khedira in Germany World Cup squad

Irene MckinneyMay 16, 2018

Reinhard Grindel, the president of the DFB, confirmed the news at the announcement of Germany's World Cup squad for the Russian Federation 2018 finals and also revealed Oliver Bierhoff, the national team's director, has extended until 2024.

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and another Dortmund star, winger Marco Reus have both been included in the Die Mannschaft provisional squad.

That is despite four goalkeepers being named by Low, as he looks to give captain Manuel Neuer maximum time to recover from the injuries that have prevented him playing since September. "And after the training camp, we want to talk fair and square".

While Goetze misses out, coach Joachim Loew pulled a surprise by handing Freiburg striker Nils Petersen a first call-up.

However, Low has opted against calling him up for the tournament, instead selecting the likes of Thomas Muller, Gomez, Timo Werner and Nils Petersen. "He has little worldwide experience but he will grow with the task", Loew said.

"It wasn't Mario's season".

"This is a big responsibility to continue developing players", the 58-year-old told reporters after German Football Association President Reinhard Grindel said they had agreed to extend their current deal by two more years.

Bayern striker Wagner misses out on the tournament as Loew favoured Stuttgart veteran striker Mario Gomez.

Reus, meanwhile, appears to finally have a chance to play in a World Cup, having returned to form and fitness at Borussia Dortmund since his comeback from injury in February.

Others on the outside looking in will be injured Liverpool midfielder Emre Can, Dortmund midfielder Julian Weigl and forward Andre Schurrle and Arsenal defender Skhodran Mustafi.

Four Premier League players - Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger, Manchester City's Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan and Arsenal's Mesut Ozil - were named to the preliminary squad.
