There is no place in Loew's squad for Goetze, who scored the winning goal in the 2014 World Cup finals, after an erratic season at Borussia Dortmund.

The 32-year-old Neuer suffered a broken bone in his foot and only returned to training days ago but Germany coach Joachim Loew made a decision to take 4 keepers to the training camp in the Italian Alps from May 23-June 5. "We want to observe him ourselves to form an impression and will be able to do that at the training camp", Loew said of the side's preparations in South Tyrol, Italy, from May 23.

"We watched [Gotze] this season and we have to say that it wasn't his season", Low said.

Yet there is no place for striker Sandro Wagner, Robert Lewandowski's back-up at Bayern Munich, who helped Germany win the Conferderations Cup in Russian Federation a year ago.

Stardew Valley PS Vita release date confirmed
Rejoice, the long-awaited PlayStation Vita edition of Stardew Valley is coming very soon. It's just the same great game you've come to know and love, but ready to play on the go.

"Marco is a special weapon, he has special gifts", Loew said. Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen received an invitation from the national team after scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

The Borussia Dortmund striker scored in extra time against Argentina in 2014 to seal Germany's fourth World Cup.

The Premier League is also represented in the squad, with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil joined by Manchester City duo Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane, along with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.

"This is a big responsibility to continue developing players", the 58-year-old said after German football association, or DFB, president Reinhard Grindel said they had agreed to extend their current deal by 2 more years. "Some (of the reaction) seems to be over the top to me".
