Neuer in Germany's initial WCup squad

Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen is rewarded for a fine goalscoring season in the Bundesliga Mario Gotze who scored the winning goal in the final as Germany triumphed four years ago, misses out, however, after suffering a severe dip in form at Signal Iduna Park this term but Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi and Liverpool midfielder Emre Can are among those to miss out.

The 32-year-old Bayern Munich star is one of four goalkeepers named by head coach Joachim Loew, who will have to cut four names when the final 23-man squad is submitted for the World Cup finals, which start on June 14 in Russian Federation. "And after the training camp, we want to talk fair and square".

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

Gotze has also missed out, the hero of Germany's last World Cup final, the Dortmund man has not been performing to the highest level this term.

Of this squad list, four will be cut for the final group before the World Cup kicks off in June. "He has great intelligence in the game and in the second half of the season he was in really good form".

Notable players on the plane to Russian Federation include Mesut Ozil, Jerome Boateng, Thomas Muller, Toni Kroos, Mats Hummels, Leroy Sane, injury-prone Marco Reus; and surprise inclusion of Bayer Leverkusen's highly-rated centre back, Jonathan Tah.

"This is a big responsibility to continue developing players", the 58-year-old said after German football association, or DFB, president Reinhard Grindel said they had agreed to extend their current deal by 2 more years.

"I would like to be the coach who brings Italy back to the top".

Germany are in Group F with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in this summer's tournament in Russian Federation.
