Germany reveal provisional squad for 2018 World Cup

Dortmund's midfielder Mario 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. The German Football Association (DFB) announced on Tuesday at the unveiling of the defending champions list for the Mundial with the 58-year-old signed a four-year deal through to 2022 including his assistant Thomas Schneider and goalkeeping coach Andreas Kopke.

Remembering that he first walked through the doors of Italy's Coverciano training camp in 1978 with the under-14 team, Mancini said it was the right moment in his career to take on the challenge of coaching his country. The former Bayern Munich player and Borussia Dortmund legend, who scored the winning goal against Argentina at the final in Brazil has been out of form, and national team coach, Joachim Low, has made a decision to look elsewhere.

The Borussia Dortmund striker scored in extra time against Argentina in 2014 to seal Germany's fourth World Cup. "He has great intelligence in the game and in the second half of the season he was in really good form". Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen received an invitation from the national team after scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga this season.
