  • World Cup 2018 Germany confirm final 23-man squad but exclude Leroy Sane

The 22-year-old winger enjoyed a brilliant season at Manchester City, earning PFA Young Player of the Year honours, but he won't be present in Russian Federation.

Joachim Löw sprang a surprise in his final 23 for the World Cup by leaving out Leroy Sané.

Many would argue Sane actually had a better and more consistent season than team-mate and wing-twin Raheem Sterling who is one of England's big hopes for Russian Federation.

For those of you who might not remember, Donovan, then the United States' all-time leading scorer, was shockingly left off the plane for the World Cup in South Africa four years ago by Low's former boss Jurgen Klinsmann.

Sane has struggled to reproduce his club form on the worldwide stage.

However, despite his talent, Sane was not included in Low's Germany 23-man squad travelling to Russian Federation this month to compete in the World Cup.

Boss Jogi Low has instead opted to bring Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt. Leroy has a huge talent. In his 12 appearances for Germany, the winger has only one assist and is yet to score.


Sane was cut from the squad with Timo Werner and the veteran Mario Gomez included as just two out-and-out strikers.

Germany were reportedly turned off when Sane made a decision to snub last year's Confederations Cup in favour of having surgery on his nose.

The City manager will no doubt be left with mixed emotions.

The big surprise of the announcement is the omission of Manchester City's Leroy Sane.

Sane's City team-mate Vincent Kompany enjoyed better fortune.

As expected, Mohamed Salah has been named in Egypt's squad, -despite suffering a shoulder injury in the Champions League final.

"If something happens at the back, we need alternatives, so I had to make that hard decision".
