GETTYJoachim Loew has named his Gernany World Cup squad

Defending Champions of FIFA World Cup, Germany has announced its 27-man provisional squad for the upcoming FIFA World Cup which will be played in Russian Federation.

Neuer has been injured since September, when he suffered a fractured foot, and has made just four appearances since last April.

The 32-year-old Bayern Munich star is one of four goalkeepers named by head coach Joachim Loew, who will have to cut four names when the final 23-man squad is submitted for the World Cup finals, which start on June 14 in Russian Federation. "And after the training camp we want to talk fair and square".

Head Coach Joachim Low has included several heroes from 2014 in Brazil, including Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels, Mesut Ozil, Thomas Muller, and injury doubt Manuel Neuer.

While Goetze misses out, coach Joachim Loew pulled a surprise by handing Freiburg striker Nils Petersen a first call-up.

The preliminary list missed two of the most important players in Germany - Borussia Dortmund forward Mario Gotze, who scored the 2014 World Cup winning goal over Argentina in the final, and Bayern Munich striker Sandro Wagner.

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.

Germany will start their World Cup campaign on 17 June, with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in their group F.
