Defending Champions of FIFA World Cup, Germany has announced its 27-man provisional squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup which will be played in Russian Federation.

The Premier League is also represented in the squad, with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil joined by Manchester City duo Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane, along with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.

"From the DFB's perspective, it has been made clear that it was not a good decision, but I didn't think of leaving them out for a second", said Germany head coach Joachim Loew. "They have have expressed regret and done a lot for integration in Germany".

But there is a notable absentee with World Cup final goal scorer Mario Gotze missing out.

The 32-year-old last played in a competitive outing for the Bavarians in September 2017 against 1.

Loew could well announce an expanded provisional list, like a number of other national team coaches, and wait until the June 4 deadline to reveal his final 23-man squad for the tournament. Loew opts for Petersen over Bayern Munich forward Sandro Wagner.

In the post since 2006, Loew, 58, who steered Germany to their 2014 World Cup triumph, has signed a two-year extension to take him through to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. "It's definitely not been his season".

Yet former global Kahn believes the player himself must consider carefully whether it is wise to be part of the squad after such a lengthy spell out of action. "Personally, I'm very sorry for him", Loew said of Goetze.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen has deputised in Neuer's absence for the national team, including their successful Confederations Cup campaign in Russian Federation previous year.
