Why have Germany left Sane out of the World Cup?

Leroy Sane has been omitted from Germany's World Cup squad

The 22-year-old is coming off the back of an impressive season at club level which saw him collect a Premier League and Carabao Cup double.

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

Bernd Leno, Jonathan Tah and Nils Petersen have also been excluded after making the initial 27-man provisional squad but Marco Reus and Julian Brandt are on the plane.

Saudi Arabia are the final opponents for Germany before the World Cup kicks-off, a game in which they will be looking to end a five-game winless streak before the tournament starts.

The 6ft 1in winger made his debut for Germany in 2016 and has picked up 15 caps, scoring one goal, which came against San Marino in 2017.

Despite his fine form for City, Sané has not been able to replicate it on the global stage.

It is Sane's omission which is seen as most shocking, after a standout season with Pep Guardiola's runaway Premier League winners. "Draxler Reus and Müller are set".

Catalonia government sworn in, ending Madrid's direct rule
Mr Sánchez is opposed to another independence referendum in Catalonia, but wants talks on the situation in the prosperous region. But they have very different targets, with Spain's Socialists, who had backed Rajoy's Catalonia policy, opposing independence.

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

Boss Jogi Low has instead opted to bring Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt.

"Leroy is a huge talent".

Germany must be the envy of most other national teams.

The 'keeper said his careful reintroduction had been a deliberate ploy - he didn't play a single match for Bayern before joining up with the national squad.

It's what makes his snub from Germany's 23-man squad such a shook.
