Injured Neuer in Germany's provisional squad, Emre Can left out

Nine other players from Germany's winning 2014 squad will be on board as the Nationalmannschaft eye back-to-back trophies this summer.

"These days, I feel a great desire for the upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation and the intense weeks with the team".

"He knows that. We will see at the end of the month or early June how things look and then we will have an honest discussion". "I think he has enormous quality and he has proved this but he was not in that form".

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. "Personally, I'm very sorry for him", Loew said of Goetze.

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.

Germany face Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in World Cup Group F.

Manager Joachim Low has also extended his contract until 2022.

Low replaced Jurgen Klinsmann in 2006 and led his country to World Cup glory in 2014.

"I am thrilled to continue working in the entire team of the national team and to do everything I can together to stay at the top of the league", Bierhoff said. "We had some players on the pitch who had the opportunity to show themselves at this level - they did not take it", midfielder Toni Kroos said after the defeat in Berlin.

"We will see how it goes from day to day", Germany coach Joachim Loew told reporters.

Germany have reached at least the semifinals of all five tournaments they've competed at since.
