Manchester City’s Leroy Sane returns to Germany squad for upcoming matches after being left out of World Cup

29 Aug

Leroy Sane has been restored to the Germany squad by manager Joachim Loew.

Die Mannschaft announced their 23-man selection on Wednesday ahead of upcoming matches against France and Peru.

Sane was left out of Germany’s squad for the 2018 World Cup

The Manchester City winger was a shock exclusion from the country’s World Cup squad for the summer’s tournament in Russia.

Without him, the 2014 champions succumbed to a humiliating group stage elimination and a turbulent spell has followed surrounding Mesut Ozil’s controversial international retirement.

Germany now return to the international stage for the first time since their 2-0 defeat to South Korea in Kazan.

They face France in the UEFA Nations League on September 6, followed by Peru in a friendly on September 9.
