    Draxler (can play wide left), Brandt, Reus looking at it,

    Reus is one kick away from Injury, Brandt (imo) is nowhere near Sane level and Draxler hasn't that dynamic pace.

    Interesting decision...

    Reus and Draxler instead of Sané .
    hmm cant say I saw mych of Draxler this year, or from Reus, but it souds like a harsh decission knowing the season Sane had?

    One of the most in-form German player this year, and doesn't get picked? He's gotta stop sniffing his balls ffs

    Dying :D

    It is a poor decision, Brandt isn't even a poor mans version of Sane...

    Didn’t expect it but Germany has always been known for having a great squad and not great solo players.
    Sane didn’t really work when he played for the national team so I kinda get why they left him at home

    Yup and Neuer probably starting ahead of tear Stegen

    It’s prob political inside that camp. I definitely won’t be putting my $$ On them

    same @limjitwe

    For me it can't be a question of talent.... so im going with the 'because he's a Bundesliga player' reason....

    Feel sorry for the kid, imagine having a stellar season and NOT making it to the WC. Mental.

    Don’t get the surprise. His form towards the end of the season was patchy and he’s never actually performed to a high enough standard for Germany.

    Similar to Martial for France, obviously both have plenty of ability but if it’s not applied for their national team then that’s on them.

    As a German, I'm kinda shocked. Like what the hell, Löw...
    I've watched the friendly against Austria the other day and Sané looked quite good. His end product wasn't there yet but with his pace, dribbling and directness he could've offered something we simply don't have elsewhere in the squad. I don't think it should've been between him and Brandt. BOTH should be going. Instead, drop Rudy! Why is he even there? Has hardly even played at all for Bayern last season.

    On another point, Trapp over Leno?! Are you kidding me! Trapp also has hardly even played for PSG unlike Leno who played for a team week in and week out that's competing for the CL and was 2th in the Bundesliga for quite a while too.

    That's madness!

    Reading comments from fellow German football fans, they can't believe it either. Just imagine if we go out in the group stage or something like that.... Löw will regret this decision big time. Wow.

    im looking at it on a plyer fpr player basis @Jason1986

    For me Brandt isn't comparable to Sane.

    I just heard a 'Belgian expert' trying to formulate an arguement that Junaizi, Witsel, Tielemans and Fellaini are as good as Radja in a CM position hence in part why he isn't going.

    Heads gone

    Yeah a few odd decisions for sure. Im genuinely dumbfounded to be honest.

    Pretty sure Germany has had a good record of taking the best players for the system they want to play. If Sane doesn’t fit, or can’t perform in that system, which he hasn’t done then why does he deserve a place over someone who can offer more for the team? Think Joachim Low knows more than we all do on what he wants from his players.

    This isn’t an Icardi situation where he’s left out because of “team politics”.

    Also I’m pretty sure Naingollan is more of an attacking midfielder, Belgium aren’t short of creative midfielders and forwards.

    This has me :angry: on Sane though tough call but Germany always prevails. The U-21s won the Confederation cup against Alexis/Vidal led Chile.

    Pure mental decision. The lad is world class and proved it all season. I have never seen Brandt play so can't say he's not as good as Sane with any certainty - but he must have had one hell of a season to keep Sane out.
