Neuer in Germany squad, Wagner out

Neuer in Germany squad, Wagner out

Germany enjoyed a stunning success over hosts Brazil in the semi-finals, running out 7-1 winners, and went on to beat Argentina in extra-time in the final.

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

"The planning horizon over four years is ideal, I'd like to think, especially because there might be some changes in the squad after the 2018 World Cup", Low said.

Bayern attacker Sandro Wagner, who moved from Hoffenheim to Bayern in January to increase his chances of playing at the World Cup, was not selected despite scoring eight league goals for the Bundesliga champions in 14 matches. He also missed Euro 2016 through injury.

"Marco is a special weapon and has a lot of strong attributes - speed, instinct, feeling for the spaces, game intelligence". "He has great intelligence in the game and in the second half of the season he was in really good form".

Loew opted for Petersen over Bayern Munich forward Sandro Wagner, giving the 29-year-old Freiburg player his first call-up to the national team after an excellent season.
