  • Sane left out of Germany squad

Manchester City winger Sane was expected to travel to Russian Federation after an impressive campaign that concluded with him being named the PFA Young Player of the Year.

Joachim Löw sprang a surprise in his final 23 for the World Cup by leaving out Leroy Sané.

While pundits and fans alike expressed their utter shock at Sane's snub, one player who can relate better than anyone, Landon Donovan, offered Sane an alternative to Russian Federation 2018.

"I always thought I would be going to the World Cup and I didn't want to take any risk", Neuer said.

The main point of contention was that Leroy Sane - a man who has been in eye-wateringly good form for Manchester City over the past nine months - was omitted from the squad heading to Russian Federation.

A president can't obstruct justice? That's not quite right, legal scholars say
A special counsel is investigating Russia's role in the 2016 election, and whether Mr Trump obstructed justice. He went on: "I think the political ramifications of that would be tough".

Low admitted it had been an agonising call, he hadn't enjoyed making it but assured Sane he will play a big part in Germany's future.

He only has 12 caps to his name, just six of those have been starts, and he is yet to score for his country but you can not say that he has not been given a fair chance to prove himself; four of his six starts have come in his last six outings.

If you look simply at the data from the 2017-18 season, Brandt's inclusion over Sane just seems downright peculiar.

But apart from team-mate Kevin De Bruyne, no player in Europe's top five leagues had more assists than him. He was also in Germany's Confederations Cup winning squad last summer.

The 22-year-old winger has played his whole senior professional career with Bayer Leverkusen, with whom he finished fifth in the Bundesliga this season.

Google retreating from military AI project
The EFF and others stressed the need for moral and ethical frameworks regarding the use of artificial intelligence in weaponry. Google's artificial intelligence would bring "an exquisite capability" for "near-real time analysis", the email said.

The City manager will no doubt be left with mixed emotions.

Can you think of a better player who's staying at home?

As expected, Mohamed Salah has been named in Egypt's squad, -despite suffering a shoulder injury in the Champions League final.

"That was a very close decision between him and Julian Brandt, which was made in favor of Brandt".
