Leroy Sane left out of Germany World Cup squad

However, instead of Sane, Germany Coach Joachim Löw opted for the likes of Julian Draxler, Marco Reus, Julian Brandt and Sebastian Rudy.

Sane's omission from the German squad shocked many football pundits and fans.

Sane has struggled to reproduce his club form on the global stage.

There is a chance that Germany could meet England at the quarter-final stage of the competition, and a battle between Sane and Walker - two extremely fast players - would have been great to watch.

The defending champions, Germany, have named their 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

In his 12 appearances for Germany, six of which have come as a starter, he has managed only one assist and is yet to score a goal.

'Leroy is a huge talent, ' Low continued. He is joined by Mesut Ozil, Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller who also made the cut for the tournament.

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.

Walker wrote: "When you find out Leroy Sane isn't going to the World Cup".

Germany were reportedly turned off when Sane chose to snub last year's Confederations Cup in favour of having surgery on his nose.

The 22-year-old winger has played his whole senior professional career with Bayer Leverkusen, with whom he finished fifth in the Bundesliga this season.

Yet maybe that feeling is more acute among those of us whose national teams could not afford to leave such a quality player behind, or those of us who are focusing too much on Sane's development at the Etihad Stadium.

He also said dropping Crystal Palace's Christian Benteke was his "toughest decision".
