Mario Gotze Has His Say On Germany World Cup Squad Snub

Mario Gotze has taken to Twitter to have his say on being overlooked for Germany's World Cup squad.

The 25-year old was Die Mannschaft's hero in 2014, notching a late extra time winner as Joachim Low's side edged out Argentina to win the World Cup for the fourth time.


But four years on, after a battle with metabolic illness and a struggle with finding his form back at Borussia Dortmund, Gotze has not been chosen in the 23-man travelling party to Russia.

In a message today, he expressed his disappointment over being left out but remained upbeat he will be back in the national team fold soon - as well as wishing everyone involved the best of luck for the showpiece.

The pool of players available to the Germans is so strong that along with Gotze, the likes of Andre Schurrle, Emre Can, Sandro Wagner and Shkodran Mustafi are all deemed surplus to requirements for this summer's tournament.

There is, however, a place on the plane for Marco Reus. He missed out on the 2014 triumph due to injury, before his rotten luck continued when he was absent from the Euros two years later, but the 28-year old now looks to be in a promising position to end his international heartbreak.

The 28-year old's last game for his country was in March 2016 against Italy.
