Bayern couldn't have asked for a better replacement for Manuel Neuer. Sven Ulreich has had an impressive season so far. But is he good enough to make Germany's World Cup squad?
Reigning world champions Germany suffered defeat in their opening game of the World Cup 2018. Mexico top Group F after clinching a narrow, but well-deserved, 1-0 win courtesy of Hirving Lozano's first-half goal.
Joachim Löw confirmed his final 23-man squad for the 2018 Football World Cup. Manuel Neuer travels to Russia as Germany's first-choice goalkeeper while Bernd Leno, Jonathan Tah, Leroy Sané and Nils Petersen are left out.
An error-strewn display saw Germany fall to defeat against a David Alaba-inspired Austria. Germany were, however, boosted by an encouraging performance by Manuel Neuer, who played his first full game since September.
Germany's loss to Mexico in their World Cup opener was no fluke. They were out-run, out-thought and out-fought by their opponents. The display poses Joachim Löw serious questions about some of his most trusted players.
