Attacking midfielder Leroy Sane was a surprise omission from Joachim Loew's final Germany squad for the World Cup finals Monday as goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was named among the 23 players heading to Russia for the defending champions. Neuer made the squad despite playing in just one official game, a friendly against Austria Friday, since breaking a bone in his foot in September but 22-year-old Sane was the highest-profile player excluded.The Manchester City midfielder, goalkeeper Bernd Leno, forward Nils Petersen and defender Jonathan Tah were the players that failed to make the cut from Loew's provisional list.Sane, who joined the English champions in 2016, had been a surprise addition to Germany's Euro 2016 squad two years ago but this time he was overlooked by Loew, who opted to take the more physical Julian Brandt to Russia instead.
