5 players who missed out a place in Germany's provisional World Cup squad
#2 Sandro Wagner (Bayern Munich)
One of the most notable exclusions from Germany's provisional World Cup squad is of Bayern Munich striker Sandro Wagner. The towering striker has been in good form this season which ultimately got him a move to Munich from Hoffenheim.
He has been a brilliant deputy for Robert Lewandowski and has effectively shared the workload with him. Germany are expected to start with Timo Werner and Thomas Müller up front with many projecting Sandro Wagner as Germany's Plan B.
But the German management has gone ahead and selected Nils Petersen of Freiburg ahead of Sandro Wagner. Peterson was Bundesliga's second highest goalscorer with 13 goals and is a surprise inclusion in the squad.
