Luck doesn’t seem to be Marco Reus’ best friend, at least when it comes to participating in major tournament with German national side.
After missing out on World Cup 2014, Reus has now been left out from the upcoming Euro 2016 as German medical team can’t confirm his availability for that tournament.
The decision in leaving out Reus is a tough one according to the World Cup winner head coach, Joachim Loew, who was not really keen on making that difficult choice.
Nevertheless, without solid recommendation from team doctors regarding Reus’ ability to play in such big tournament, Loew could’t take any chances.
Loew himself did admit that should the Borussia Dortmund star was fit, he will definitely be an important asset for German national team.
Here is Germany’s final squad for Euro 2016:
Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern München), Marc-André ter Stegen (Barcelona), Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen).
Defenders: Jérôme Boateng (Bayern München), Jonas Hector (Köln), Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund), Benedikt Höwedes (Schalke), Shkodran Mustafi (Valencia), Emre Can (Liverpool), Antonio Rüdiger (Roma).
Midfielders: Sami Khedira (Juventus), Toni Kroos (Real Madrid), Mesut Özil (Arsenal), Julian Draxler (Wolfsburg), Bastian Schweinsteiger (Manchester United), Joshua Kimmich (Bayern München), Julian Weigl (Borussia Dortmund), Leroy Sané (Schalke).
Forwards: Lukas Podolski (Galatasaray), Thomas Müller (Bayern München), Mario Gomez (Beşiktaş), Mario Götze (Bayern München), André Schürrle (Wolfsburg).
