Man City star Leroy Sane left out of final Germany squad

In his place is Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt, a player of the same age (22) who scored one fewer and assisted 12 fewer in the Bundesliga than Sane's 2017/18 Premier League total of 10 goals and 15 assists.

Manchester City attacker Leroy Sane has been left out of Germany's 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Also omitted are Bayer Leverkusen duo Bernd Leno and Jonathan, as well as Freiburg striker Nils Petersen.

Leroy Sane seems to have taken his recent World Cup snub quite well.

Sane has struggled to reproduce his club form on the global stage.

Sane has had an unreal season, playing 32 times in the Citizens' Premier League-winning campaign.

The attacker was shockingly not called up to the German national side, the manager Joachim Löw opting for players Marco Reus and Julian Draxler ahead of the speedster. Draxler, Reus and Muller are set.

"It was a very close decision".

'Leroy is a huge talent, ' Low continued. "He will be back again from Sept", Low said.

It was a record-breaking season for Sane. Broadly, Sane's duties with the national team would be more akin to what Silva provides for City, and how he plays out wide for Spain.

"Julian Brandt had some good games at the Confederations Cup and was also very good in training, it was close".

"He has not arrived in worldwide matches yet".

But he is a far better and more mature player and has come on in leaps and bounds after two years in England under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola.

So which players have made it into their squad?
