Loew has also selected Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan despite the pair landing in hot water with the German FA over the weekend after the Premier League stars posed for pictures with Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Do you think that Bisping will take this fight before calling it a career? "Before you retire, you've got to fight me first". Five years ago, a fight between Machida and Belfort would've headlined its own pay-per-view.

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 global caps.

Borussia Dortmund's Mario Gotze, who scored the goal to win Germany the World Cup in 2014, has been omitted by Low. "It's definitely not been his season". "We saw that it was not his season, not the normal form with his quality", Loew told reporters. "Personally, I'm very sorry for him", Loew said of Goetze.

While Goetze misses out, coach Joachim Loew pulled a surprise by handing Freiburg striker Nils Petersen a first call-up.

Yet there is no place for striker Sandro Wagner, Robert Lewandowski's back-up at Bayern Munich, who helped Germany win the Conferderations Cup in Russian Federation past year.

Ozil is in the squad despite suffering from a back injury while Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has also been called up even though he is now sidelined by a groin injury. Dortmund winger Marco Reus has a spot in the extended squad after missing out on the victorious 2014 World Cup squad after tearing ankle ligaments in a warm-up game.

Germany will start their World Cup campaign on 17 June, with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in their group F.
