Germany Announce Squad For Brazil & Spain Friendlies, Several Stars Miss Out

Germany boss Joachim Low has announced his squad for the friendly clashes against Brazil and Spain, but several stars missed out.

Click through the gallery above to see 10 Germany stars who did not make the current world champions' latest squad.

The reigning FIFA World Champions were unbeaten in 2017, winning 11 and drawing four of the 15 matches played, and also won the FIFA Confederations Cup and qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Germans have a massive pool of players to pick from, and this was clearly showcased last year when they effectively won the Confed Cup with what was essentially a "B" team.

Low has two friendly matches lined up in the next international break to tweak his squad for the showpiece, starting with Spain in Düsseldorf on 23 March and then the Selecao in Berlin four days later.

Germany's full 26-man squad, as announced via the Germany national team's official Twitter account:

Goalkeepers: Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona), Kevin Trapp (Paris Saint-Germain)

Defenders: Mats Hummels (Bayern Munich), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern Munich), Antonio Rudiger (Roma), Niklas Sule (Bayern Munich), Matthias Ginter (Borussia Monchengladbach), Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Marvin Plattenhardt (Hertha Berlin), Jonas Hector (FC Koln)

Midfielders/Forwards: Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen), Emre Can (Liverpool), Julian Draxler (Paris Saint-Germain), Sami Khedira (Juventus), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Sebastian Rudy (Bayern Munich), Lars Stindl (Borussia Monchengladbach), Timo Werner (Red Bull Leipzig), Ilkay Gundogan (Manchester City), Mario Gomez (Stuttgart), Sandro Wagner (Bayern Munich), Leroy Sane (Manchester City), Leon Goretzka (Schalke), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) and Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich)
