Germany coach Loew agrees contract extension to 2022 - DFB

Neuer in last-chance saloon

The 32-year-old Neuer suffered a broken bone in his foot and only returned to training days ago but Germany coach Joachim Loew made a decision to take four keepers to the training camp in the Italian Alps from May 23-June 5.

Germany have signed coach Joachim Low and his staff to a two-year contract extension, keeping them in control of the national team through the 2022 World Cup, the German football federation (DFB) announced on Tuesday at the unveiling of the provisional World Cup squad.

"We will see how it goes from day-to-day", Germany coach Joachim Loew told reporters.

Given Loew's trust in experienced players, local media are speculating that 2014 World Cup hero Mario Goetze could be recalled despite a disappointing season at Borussia Dortmund and his omission for the recent friendlies with Spain and Brazil.

The 2014 World Cup victor had been linked with several high profile roles, including the vacant Arsenal post.

The Borussia Dortmund start scored in extra time against Argentina in 2014 to give Germany its fourth World Cup. He also missed Euro 2016 through injury.

Loew also opted to stick with the experienced Mario Gomez as his second-choice striker behind Timo Werner and picked Freiburg's Nils Petersen ahead of Sandro Wagner. "And apart from that he is a very good substitute", Loew said of Petersen.

Germany will begin its World Cup defense with group games against Mexico, Sweden and South Korea.

In the build-up Germany face a warm-up friendly against Austria on June 2, and another versus Saudi Arabia six days later.
