German coach, Joachim Low has surprisingly included injured Bayern Munich goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer in his provisional 27-man squad list on Tuesday.
Neuer who has not played since September 2017 since he suffered a fractured foot had earlier stated that he does not think he will be making the team list for the Mundial.
Low, however, has included the Bayern Munich goalkeeper in his provisional squad, along with Barcelona’s Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Bayer Leverkusen’s Bernd Leno and PSG stopper Kevin Trapp.
The German coach gave reasons for the inclusion of Neuer for the provisional squad stating that he wants to test his fitness ahead of the tournament.
He said, “We want to see for ourselves if Manuel Neuer is fit, we have a chance to see and assess him. And after the training camp, we want to talk fair and square.”
