The title-holders will have to submit their final 23-man squad including three goalkeepers on June 4.

"Manuel is getting back into full training this week at Bayern Munich, that assures us that he can tolerate the full load in the training camp", explained Loew.

Germany have announced their preliminary 27-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer, and there's a place in the squad for goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

The Bayern Munich goalkeeper has not played since suffering a recurrence of a fractured foot in September, restricting him to just four appearances since the initial injury in April of previous year.

The 32-year-old could make a high-profile return in Bayern's DFB-Pokal showdown with Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, while Germany have scheduled pre-tournament friendlies against Austria and Saudi Arabia.

The magma would heat the water and create steam that would push accumulated rocks out in an explosion. Geologists warn that Kilauea could shoot out large boulders and ash out of its summit crater.

The squad and their club-side are as follows: Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern), Marc-André ter Stegen (Barcelona), Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), Kevin Trapp (PSG). He has always made a very good impression.

However, there was no place in the squad for Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi, who was part of the World Cup-winning squad in 2014 and has 20 worldwide caps.

Uncapped Freiburg striker Nils Petersen received an invitation from the national team after scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga this season.

The Premier League is also represented in the squad, with Arsenal's Mesut Ozil joined by Manchester City duo Ilkay Gundogan and Leroy Sane, along with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger.

Germany enjoyed a stunning success over hosts Brazil in the semi-finals, running out 7-1 winners, and went on to beat Argentina in extra-time in the final.
