Germany coach Joachim Low has selected a young squad for the tournament, which stretches from June 17 to July 2 and could see those involved play up to five games ahead of returning for pre-season with their clubs.
"Some players who we've already seen play at major tournaments before have been given a break because I think three tournaments in three years is a heavy workload," Low is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying.
"They have been deliberately left out because the 2018 World Cup stands above all else."
