Leroy Sane has been dropped from Germany's 23-man squad for the World Cup.

Sane was expected to make the final squad, but Julian Brandt edged him.

"We have good players on the wing in Thomas Muller and Marco Reus. Julian Draxler played a good Confed Cup, and made progress there," Low said. "It was a tight race between Leroy Sane and Julian Brandt. Both have big qualities, both are good in the one-on-one duels.

"Julian Brandt was at the Confed Cup, had some strong games there, and put in good shifts in the training camp too. Leroy Sane is a huge talent, no doubt, and he will be back with the team in September."
