City's Leroy Sane omitted from German World Cup squad

Sane left out of Germany squad

The surprise was due to the 22-year-old's impressive club season, having contributed 14 goals and 17 assists to City's record-breaking campaign that yielded the English Premier League and Carabao Cup double. Belgium have until 24 hours before their opening match against Panama on June 18 to make a final decision.

While pundits and fans alike expressed their utter shock at Sane's snub, one player who can relate better than anyone, Landon Donovan, offered Sane an alternative to Russian Federation 2018.

Leroy Sane's omission from Germany's World Cup squad stunned football fans.

Despite his fine form for City, Sané has not been able to replicate it on the worldwide stage.

On the plus side for Walker though, Sane's exclusion means that if England do end up facing Germany, he'll be spared facing that terror this summer.

Low also revealed how he informed the four players, namely Sane, Jonathan Tah, Bernd Leno and Nils Petersen, of his decision to cut them from Germany's final World Cup squad on Monday morning, and that it was not an easy day for him.

South Korea says North Korea committed to 'complete' denuclearisation, summit with Trump
Donald Trump has said negotiations over a potential summit with the leader of North Korea are "going along very well". He said there is a "lot of good will" and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula would be "a great thing".

Sane's decision did not go down well with Low, given it was a chance to stake his claim.

The irony is that Low had included Sane in his Euro 2016 squad just before his £37m move from Schalke to City when he was full of potential but raw. He was also shortlisted for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

The City manager will no doubt be left with mixed emotions.

Manchester City defender Kyle Walker expressed his surprise at Sane's exclusion on Instagram, posting a photo of himself spraying water with the caption: "When you find out @leroysane19 isn't going to the World Cup ".

Can you think of a better player who's staying at home? "Vincent is a true leader - his leadership is essential for us", he said.

He comes in at the expense of Christian Benteke, the Crystal Palace striker omitted after a frustrating season at Selhurst Park.
