GETTYManuel Neuer has made the preliminary Germany World Cup squad

Injured Manuel Neuer was named in Germany's extended 27 man pre-World Cup squad on Tuesday, but there was no place for Brazil 2014 victor, Mario Goetze.

Loew's chosen squad came with a number of surprises, as he chose to include Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, although he isn't ready yet, as some press reports said that he's not fully recovered from the injury he had suffered last September.

Pictures of Germany's Manuel Neuer and Marc-Andre ter Stegen are displayed during the announcement.

Loew has been in charge for 160 matches, winning 106, more than any other Germany coach.

"We saw that it was not his season, not the normal form with his quality", Loew told reporters.

Given Loew's trust in experienced players, local media are speculating that 2014 World Cup hero Mario Goetze could be recalled despite a disappointing season at Borussia Dortmund and his omission for the recent friendlies with Spain and Brazil. "I think he has huge quality and he has proved this but he was not in that form".

The Borussia Dortmund striker scored in extra time against Argentina in 2014 to seal Germany's fourth World Cup.

"Marco is a special weapon, he has special gifts", Loew said of the forward.
