Attacking midfielder Leroy Sane was a surprise omission from Joachim Loew's final Germany squad for the World Cup finals on Monday as goalkeeperManuel Neuer was named among the 23 players heading to Russian Federation for the defending champions.
However, Low explained it was a "very close decision" between Sane and Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brant, who ultimately got the nod, adding that Sane, "has not arrived in global matches yet".
If Germany's offense stutters in Russian Federation, fans are sure to recall Sane's exceptional ability to beat players one-on-one.
In his 12 appearances for Germany, six of which have come as a starter, he has managed only one assist and is yet to score a goal.
'He already has something extraordinary in the game and that speed that is needed internationally, ' the boss said then.
Sane missed 2017 Confederations Cup to undergo nasal surgery while Brandt starred for the young German squad that lifted the title. But while many would have believed it's just a matter of time that Sane, the EPL's fastest player, would excel for his national team, Loew didn't think it would happen in Russian Federation.
"I feel good and now my focus is on the World Cup". But Loew denies that there were any off-field issues contributing to his decision leave Sane off the World Cup roster. "Leroy has conducted himself correctly and very professionally".
"The decisions I and my coaches had to make were not easy".
The Leverkusen star has played on either flank in attack - he started on the right in the 2-1 loss to Austria on Saturday - and even filled in as a wing-back for his national team.
"Leroy has a huge amount of talent and he will be back in again because from September we will re-double our work with him", Loew said.
