FRANKFURT, Germany – Germany coach Joachim Loew has included all of his injured stars in his final World Cup squad following a troubled training camp and an unconvincing 2-2 draw with Cameroon.
Among the players Loew named to the squad Monday were goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, defender and captain Philipp Lahm and midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, who missed Sunday's friendly against Cameroon while nursing injuries.
Loew cut three players from his provisional squad: defender Marcel Schmelzer, defender Shkodran Mustafi and striker Kevin Volland. Schmelzer has been bothered by a knee injury, while the other two have little international experience.
The final squad includes only one real striker, Miroslav Klose, who will be 36 by the time the World Cup kicks off.
