Germany Announce Squad For Final WC Qualifiers, 10 Stars Miss Out

Germany boss Joachim Low has announced his squad for their final two 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, but several stars, including one of the country's biggest names, missed out.

Click through the gallery above to see which German players did not make their national team's latest squad.

The 2014 World Cup champions are unbeaten for over a year, having won 14 of their past 17 games, including all their qualification matches in Group C so far.

Germany only need one more point from their final two qualifiers, against second-placed Northern Ireland and third-placed Azerbaijan, in order book their ticket for Russia.

Low recalled Jerome Boateng and Leroy Sane but has a few key players, such as Manuel Neuer and Sami Khedira, absent due to injury, while a few recent regulars, including Mesut Ozil, were not called up.

Germany's full 23-man squad:

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), Shkodran Mustafi (Arsenal), Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich, Marvin Plattenhardt (Hertha Berlin)

Midfielders/forwards: Julian Brandt (Bayer Leverkusen), Emre Can (Liverpool), Julian Draxler (Paris Saint-Germain), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Leon Goretzka (Schalke), Sebastian Rudy (Bayern Munich), Lars Stindl (Borussia Monchengladbach), Timo Werner (RB Leipzig), Amin Younes (Ajax Amsterdam), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich), Sandro Wagner (Hoffenheim), Leroy Sane (Manchester City)
