Neuer among four keepers in Germany's WC squad

Joachim Loew

Joachim Loew has been the coach of the German national team for 12 years now

"We will see how it goes from day-to-day", Germany coach Loew told reporters in Dortmund. "But you can not go into such a tournament without match practice".

Low - who agreed a contract extension to 2022 on Wednesday (NZST) - has left out Bayern Munich striker Sandro Wagner, as well as Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Gotze, who scored the goal that clinched the World Cup title four years ago in Brazil.

He said, "We want to see for ourselves if Manuel Neuer is fit, we have a chance to see and assess him". I think Mario has awesome quality.

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil, Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos and Bayern Munich trio Mats Hummels, Thomas Mueller and Jerome Boateng are part of Germany's 27-man provisional list for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. He also missed Euro 2016 through injury.

Europe steps up efforts to salvage Iran deal
Other European companies with big Iran deals and significant operations in America are giving little away about their plans. Beyond reinstating USA economic sanctions on Tehran and hoping reluctant allies will play along, there isn't one.

"We had to make a decision, and it was made in favour of [Mario] Gomez and Petersen", Low said. "I expect quite a bit from him for the tournament".

Uncapped Freiburg striker Petersen received an invitation from the national team after scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

As you can vividly remember, it was Shurrle who had the assist to Gotze's goal in the 2014 final, a sublime cross volleyed in by the 25-year-old.

Germany are placed in Group F along with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea and will take on Mexico in their opening game on June 17.
