One month before the kickoff of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the different nations are starting to reveal the content of their list of players selected to participate in the competition. If Titus cut short by directly releasing the names of the 23 Brazilians retained, others prefer for now to keep an expanded list.
This is particularly the case in Germany. Joachim Löw decided to establish a list of 27 players. Not surprisingly, Toni Kroos, Thomas Müller, Mesut Özil and Mats Hummels are present. Forced to throw in the towel at the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016, Marco Reus will logically finally compete in a major international competition with the Nationalmannschaft. The Parisian Julian Draxler has also made a place in this group, like Kevin Trapp, in balance Manuel Neuer. Short-listed Bayern Munich goalkeeper could still pay cash for his late return to injury.
And as with each list, many surprises are worth noting. On the side of the big absentees, Mario Götze (Dortmund) is at the top of the list. Hero of the German coronation at the 2014 World Cup, the midfielder will follow the competition in front of his television. The same goes for André Schürrle (Dortmund), Shkodran Mustafi (Arsenal), Sandro Wagner (Bayern) and Lars Bender (Leverkusen). For his part, Emre Can (Liverpool) will miss the call because of injury.
Absences of marks that do not prevent Joachim Löw to have a stratospheric workforce, before having to break his teeth to keep only 23 players …
