Official Germany Squad - Andreas Beck Omitted From Joachim Loew's Final 23-Man Roster

The Hoffenheim defender misses out on Loew's final squad for South Africa...

Germany coach Joachim Loew named his final squad for the 2010 World Cup on Tuesday evening.

Due to recent injuries to key players Michael Ballack, Christian Traesch, and Heiko Westermann, Loew had only one cut to make in order to trim his provisional squad down to 23 men.

Left with just two natural central midfielders in his squad, the Germany gaffer appeared set to omit a striker, but instead left out Hoffenheim right back Andreas Beck.

The story is too old to be commented.
