Germany head coach Joachim Loew's secret weapon for the 2018 FIFA World Cup has just had his vacation "ruined".

Borussia Dortmund's Mario Gotze, who scored the goal to win Germany the World Cup in 2014, has been omitted by Low.

Reus, meanwhile, finally has a chance to play in a World Cup, having returned to form and fitness at Borussia Dortmund since his comeback from injury in February. "He has great intelligence in the game and in the second half of the season he was in really good form".

The group must be whittled down to 23 by June 4, with the tournament starting on June 14.

Goalkeepers: Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Kevin Trapp (Paris Saint-Germain).

Neuer's Bayern team-mate Sandro Wagner has missed out - the striker's decision to leave Hoffenheim in January to play second fiddle to Robert Lewandowski at the Allianz Arena ultimately backfiring as Low selected uncapped Frieburg forward Nils Petersen.

Low, who managed seven times at club level before joining Klinsmann's staff in 2004, was previously one of several high-profile bosses to be linked with the Arsenal job following Arsene Wenger's announcement that his 22-year reign would end at the end of the season.

Borussia Dortmund's midfielder Goetze, who scored the victor against Argentina in the 2014 World Cup final, will miss the tournament in Russian Federation due to poor performances in the past season.

Low's backroom team of Thomas Schneider, Andreas Kopke, Oliver Bierhoff and Marcus Sorg have also all extended their contracts.
