Low to be 'open and honest' with Neuer on World Cup chances

Germany coach Joachim Loew to stay through 2022 World Cup

Mario Gomez could add to his 73 caps in Russian Federation, having previously played in Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup, Euro 2012 and Euro 2016. However, the Bayern Munich goalkeeper will be monitored during the training camp, reports Xinhua news agency.

Neuer, who has not played since September, was expected to miss the tournament after Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynkes revealed he was unlikely to play again this season.

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.

Petersen helped his club stay in the Bundesliga with 15 goals in 32 league appearances, eight of those as a substitute. "We saw that we're not as good as we're always told we are - and perhaps some of us think we are".

An enviable array of attacking options is enhanced by Borussia Dortmund's Marco Reus, whose extensive catalogue of fitness problems served to rule him out of both Euro 2016 and the previous World Cup. Aside from the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos, Julian Draxler and Mesut Ozil, there are also still places at stake in Germany's midfield - an area of considerable strength.

In the post since 2006, Loew, 58, who steered Germany to their 2014 World Cup triumph, has signed a two-year extension to take him through to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

"I know that those players [who missed out] are just very disappointed because they worked hard for it. Sandro has shown his class when with the team".

The Germany's captain and goalkeeper, had not played since September and still has to prove his fitness ahead of the June 14 start to the World Cup finals in Russian Federation.
