Mario Gomez could add to his 73 caps in Russian Federation, having previously played in Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012 and Euro 2016. "And after the training camp we want to talk fair and square".

The 27-man squad announced on Tuesday by Germany coach, Joachim Low, is made up of four goalkeepers, nine defenders, ten midfielders and four strikers.

Seemingly as a result of Gomez's inclusion Sandro Wagner misses out, despite an impressive season at Bayern Munich. "But you can not go into such a tournament without match practice".

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.

The FIFA World Cup titleholders will have to submit their final 23-man squad including three goalkeepers on June 4.

The retailer's e-commerce growth had been turbocharged since it added Jet founder Marc Lore's brain power to its ranks. The company's stock was down more than 4 per cent in early trading on Wednesday.

Marco Reus was also selected, but Borussia Dortmund teammate Goetze was left out.

Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus is included after missing both the 2014 World Cup and Euro 2016 through injury. Aside from the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos, Julian Draxler and Mesut Ozil, there are also still places at stake in Germany's midfield - an area of considerable strength.
