Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus has not been selected in the Germany squad that will be participating at the Euros 2016 in France.
The midfielder who has only recently returned from injury has not been considered for the tournament in France while Bastian Schweinsteiger has been selected in the team.
This is the second major tournament that Marco Reus will be missing in a row. Indeed, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder also missed the 2014 World Cup and was hoping that he will be able to make it this time to the Euros. The midfielder who is currently 27 years old will be hoping that he can participate in the next World Cup.
Manchester United midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger has been selected despite not playing since March. Some pundits believe that this is a gamble by the German coach Joachim Low, but the latter believes that his experience might prove useful in France. Bastian Schweinsteiger suffered an injury to the knee while he was playing for Germany in March and has been undergoing intensive treatment in order to be ready for the Euros.
Joachim Low defended his decision of leaving out Low by saying that the medical team could not provide any update about the injury and with the Euros getting closer it was important to take a decision about the team that will be participating.
He said that his injury problems were quite serious and that the medical staff was not sure whether Reus will be recovering in time and above all be in form for the tournament. Low stated that it was a difficult decision for him to take and that it was quite bitter for Marco Reus as well.
Germany will be keen to add the Euros trophy to the World Cup they won in Brazil.
