Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen is rewarded for a fine goalscoring season in the Bundesliga Mario Gotze who scored the winning goal in the final as Germany triumphed four years ago, misses out, however, after suffering a severe dip in form at Signal Iduna Park this term but Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi and Liverpool midfielder Emre Can are among those to miss out. Coach Joachim Loew, who has just signed a 2-year contract extension, has provided a 27-man provisional squad which has left German fans in a state of confusion.

Low also opted to stick with the experienced Mario Gomez as his second-choice striker behind Timo Werner and picked Freiburg's Nils Petersen ahead of Sandro Wagner.

Germany will begin its World Cup defense with group games against Mexico, Sweden and South Korea. The 30-year-old Wagner has scored 4 goals in his 8 internationals and was part of last year's Confederations Cup-winning team.
