Even if healthy he was not going to be called up for that most likely. Bierhoff has declared that they are taking an experimental team to Russia. It will be a bit of a difficult mix given that the Euro U-21 are going on at the same time, so they probably don't want to plunder too much from them either. Brandt, Goretzka, Meyer, Dahoud, Arnold, Oztunali have formed a good core for the U21 and I wouldn't like to see them broken up without having a chance to win the tournament. Don't forget what the 2009 championship did for that team in building their confidence for next year.
I expected to see Neuer, Boa, Hummels, Howedes, Kroos, Khedira, Ozil, Gotze and Muller rested anyway. Weigl as well probably, he's played way too much for Dortmund. If healthy and willing Reus and Draxler will be asked to go and I could see them both accept, they need to play a bit more with the national team. Kimmich, Mario Gomez, Hector will most likely go as well. They either didn't play in Europe or didn't play that much during the season anyway. Guys like Sule, Mustafi, Can, Rudy, Werner, Sane will make up the rest of the team. I expect Lars Stindl might get a call too.
