  • Plane crazy Sane

The Manchester City winger was a surprise omission from Joachim Low's 23-man party for Russian Federation when the head coach cut four names from his preliminary group on Monday, Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt getting the nod ahead of him.

In addition to Sane, Loew excluded goalkeeper Bernd Leno, forward Nils Petersen and defender Jonathan Tah.

Manchester City winger Sane was expected to travel to Russian Federation after an impressive campaign that concluded with him being named the PFA young player of the season.

Asked about Sane's omission, Loew said: "It was a very tight decision between him and Julian Brandt (of Bayer Leverkusen) which went in favour of Brandt". With the help of Opta, we crunch the numbers to find out...

Brandt appears to be the man preferred to Sane while Julian Draxler and Marco Reus have also been selected as wide options.

In a breakout season under Pep Guardiola, Sane was involved in 33 goals in competitive games in 2017-2018 (14 goals, 19 assists) - more than any other German player in the big five European leagues.

'Draxler, Reus and (Thomas) Muller are set.

He might have shone at club level, but Low's view that Sane has yet to make a real impact on the worldwide stage is not without merit. He has also created little more than one chance per 90 minutes on average. "But in his games with the national team he hasn't quite done the business".

The Leverkusen star has played on either flank in attack - he started on the right in the 2-1 loss to Austria on Saturday - and even filled in as a wing-back for his national team.

"It's important to have variety in your squad for a tournament but balance, too".

Leroy Sane, the most talented dribbler Germany has recently produced, won't be on display at Russian Federation 2018.
