Of course, it could have been 17 for City. However, Leroy Sane was dramatically omitted from Joachim Low's final 23-man Germany squad.

Low explained why the rapid winger failed to squeeze in.

"That was a very close decision between him and Julian Brandt, which was made in favor of Brandt. Draxler, Reus and Muller are set.

"Leroy is a huge talent. He will be back again from September. He had not arrived in international matches yet. It was a very close decision. If it was a 100 metre race, it would have been a photo finish.

"There are certainly easier days in the life of a national team head coach than they day where I have to send four payers home.

"These are four players who had merited their place in the provisional squad through their performances 'I spoke to the four players and the disappointment was huge, as you would expect.

"It's as if you are stood at the check in desk for your flight to Moscow, but are then prevented from boarding."
