Wagner re­signs from Ger­many duty

Viet Nam News - - SPORT -

BER­LIN — Bay­ern Munich’s out­spo­ken striker San­dro Wagner has re­acted to his sur­prise omission from Ger­many’s pro­vi­sional World Cup squad by retiring from in­ter­na­tional duty.

“I hereby re­sign im­me­di­ately from the na­tional team,” Wagner told Ger­man daily

The 30-year-old took a thin­lyveiled swipe at head coach Joachim Loew for leav­ing him out of the 27man squad, an­nounced on Tues­day, for next month’s World Cup as strik­ers Timo Werner, Mario Gomez and Nils Petersen were se­lected in­stead.

Wagner, who made his de­but in 2017, helped an in­ex­pe­ri­enced squad win the Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup in Rus­sia last July and has scored five goals in just eight in­ter­na­tion­als.
