Joachim Loew has sprung a major surprise with his Germany World Cup squad, by omitting Leroy Sane.
The Manchester City winger has not been included, with Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt preferred.
Manuel Neuer is included, and will lead Germany’s defence of their World Cup crown.
Neuer’s participation has been in serious doubt after an injury-hit season for the Bayern Munich goalkeeper.
But the 32-year-old came through Saturday’s friendly defeat to Austria unscathed.
It is Sane’s omission which is seen as most shocking, after a standout season with Pep Guardiola’s runaway Premier League winners.
The 22-year-old scored 14 times in 49 games for the champions and won the PFA Young Player of the Year award.
Sane started the weekend loss to Austria, playing 67 minutes.
But having missed out on last summer’s Confederations Cup triumph due to nasal surgery, Sane won’t head to Russia this summer either.
