Keeper Neuer in Germany's preliminary World Cup squad, Goetze out

Germany's World cup winning manager Joachim Loew has left out the man who plundered the winning goal in the 2014 World cup final in Rio against Argentina.

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper has not played since suffering a recurrence of a fractured foot in September, restricting him to just four appearances since the initial injury in April of past year.

Pictures of Germany's Manuel Neuer and Marc-Andre ter Stegen are displayed during the announcement.

KELEMEN: And Kang also says that North Korea shouldn't expect any sanctions relief until it takes visible steps to denuclearize. The foreign minister also ruled out any easing of sanctions against North Korea in the near future.

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

The 25-year-old scored an injury-time victor in the final four years ago as the German's saw off Argentina.

DORTMUND, Germany (AP) - Germany included injured captain Manuel Neuer in its preliminary World Cup squad on Tuesday, and striker Nils Petersen was a surprise call-up.

Fellow Borussia Dortmund player Marco Reus' hopes of making his first World Cup got a boost after he made the cut. He also missed Euro 2016 through injury.

"We had some players on the pitch who had the opportunity to show themselves at this level - they did not take it", midfielder Toni Kroos said after the defeat in Berlin.

Interestingly with Neuer's inclusion, Germany will now be taking four goalkeepers to Russian Federation and just two strikers in Mario Gomez and Nils Petersen, with Wagner perhaps the most surprising omission. Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen received an invitation from the national team after scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga this season.
