The 30-man squad will be cut down to 23 in three weeks time.
Germany manager Joachim Loew has named his 30-man provisional squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with a few surprises included.
Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund have the most representatives with six, whilst Premier League side Arsenal have three.
The Gunners aren’t the only team from England with a player included, as Chelsea forward Andre Schurrle gets a place – whilst Real Madrid’s Sami Khedira, Shkodran Mustafi of Sampdoria and Lazio veteran Mirolav Klose are the only other stars from outside of Germany.
Klose’s inclusion is something of a surprise, as is that of Schalke 04 teenagers Max Meyer and Leon Goretzka, whilst there is no place for impressive Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.
Here is the squad in full:
Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich, Roman Weidenfeller (Borussia Dortmund), Ron-Robert Zieler (Hannover 96).
Defenders: Erik Durm (Borussia Dortmund), Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Kevin Grosskreutz (Borussia Dortmund), Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund), Marcell Jansen (Hamburg), Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich), Per Mertesacker (Arsenal), Shkodran Mustafi (Sampdoria), Marcel Schmelzer (Borussia Dortmund).
Midfielders and attackers: Lars Bender (Bayer Leverkusen), Julian Draxler (Schalke 04), Matthias Ginter (Freiburg), Leon Goretzka (Schalke 04), Mario Goetze (Bayern Munich), Andre Hahn (Augsburg), Sami Khedira (Real Madrid), Toni Kroos (Bayern Munich), Max Meyer (Schalke 04), Mesut Ozil (Arsenal) Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund), Thomas Muller (Bayern Munich), Lukas Podolskoi (Arsenal), Andre Schurrle (Chelsea), Miroslav Klose (Lazio), Kevin Volland (Hoffenheim).
Loew will cut this squad down from 30 players to 23 in three weeks time and those will be the names that will fly to Brazil as part of one of the favourite teams to win the tournament.
