Reus the sur­prise omis­sion from Ger­many’s Euro squad

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Ger­many man­ager Joachim Loew sprang a sur­prise in his final 23-man squad for Euro 2016 by leav­ing out Borus­sia Dort­mund mid­fielder Marco Reus. The 27-year-old missed the World Cup tri­umph through in­jury and this time has been over­looked along with fel­low mid­field­ers Ju­lian Brandt, Karim Bel­larabi and Se­bas­tian Rudy.

Reus has strug­gled with in­juries at times this sea­son and Loew was dis­ap­pointed not to be able to se­lect the at­tack­ing mid­fielder. “He has mas­sive in­jury prob­lems and the med­i­cal staff were very scep­ti­cal about his abil­ity to last through the com­ing weeks,” said the Ger­many boss. “It is a bit­ter decision and bit­ter for Marco.”
