Sane exclusion puts Low under massive pressure, says Ballack

Sane exclusion puts Low under massive pressure, says Ballack

Despite this, many people were surprised by his absence, including Man City team-mate Kyle Walker and former Germany worldwide Michael Ballack.

Germany boss Joachim Low named his chosen 23-man squad on Monday, surprisingly leaving Sane out despite a fine domestic campaign that saw him named PFA Young Player of the Year.

A day after Low's announcement, Sane issued a statement via his Twitter account which said: "Thank you so much everyone for your encouraging messages yesterday and today".

Germany manager, Joachim Low, revealed in a press conference that the competition was close between Sane and Brandt, with the Leverkusen winger picked on the basis of his greater defensive qualities and versatility. "Go get that title!"

Freiburg's Nils Petersen and Bayer Leverkusen duo Bernd Leno and Jonathan Tah also miss out.

Sara Gilbert Says She Stands Behind ABC’s Decision to Cancel ‘Roseanne’
Some say that Roseanne was unfairly punished when other comedians often say inappropriate and even racist remarks. Gilbert reacted similarly to the tweet, tweeting out a statement of her own denouncing Roseanne Barr's comments.

Still, to not take Sane to the World Cup at all seems... a little imprudent.

The City man registered 10 goals and 15 assists in 32 league matches, meaning he was involved in more than twice as many goals as Brandt, who managed nine goals and three assists in two games more.

Germany's goalkeeper Manuel Neuer reacts after conceding the second Austrian goal during the worldwide friendly footbal match Austria v Germany in Klagenfurt, Austria, on June 2, 2018.

Low is most likely to use the 4-2-3-1 which Germany has been using for a long time.

"There are better days in the life of a national team coach, when you have to send four incredible players, who deserve to be at the World Cup, home".
