Nobody Can Believe Leroy Sane Isn’t Going to the World Cup with Germany

Nobody Can Believe Leroy Sane Isn’t Going to the World Cup with Germany

Leroy Sane has been omitted from Germany’s World Cup squad – and pretty much nobody can believe the Manchester City star will be spending the summer at home.

Having established himself as a first-team regular under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad last season, Sane went on to play a crucial role in the club’s Premier League and League Cup double, and was considered one of the best young players in English football throughout the 2017/18 campaign.

The 22-year-old was called up for Germany’s weekend friendly defeat to Austria but it seems the jet-heeled winger hasn’t done enough to secure his seat on the plane to Russia.

Manager Joachim Löw revealed his final 23-man squad this afternoon, and there was simply no room for Sane – much to the surprise of onlookers all over Europe:

It seems that Bayer Leverkusen’s Julian Brandt was the man selected ahead of Sane in the final squad – but what do you make of the decision?

Will Germany still be in with a shout of winning the competition?
