Germany coach Joachim Löw will announce his preliminary squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia at the German National Football Museum in Dortmund on 15 May.

The announcement will be the subject of much interest, particularly given that Löw, who inspired Germany to glory in Brazil in 2014, could field no fewer than four world-class starting XIs.

Drawn in Group F for the tournament, Germany face Mexico in Moscow on 17 June, Sweden in Sochi on 23 June and then conclude the group stages with a trip to Kazan to face South Korea four days later.
