Germany will be taking a decision on the presence of Marco Reus at the Confederations Cup only in the summer.
The Borussia Dortmund striker is regarded as one of the top players for the German national team. However, he had to miss the recent DFB Cup semi-final game against Bayern Munich. The 27-year-old was expected to be nominated for the Confederations Cup squad. However, manager Joachim Loew has claimed that a decision will be taken in the near future. The Dortmund striker was a significant risk in the European championship 2016, as he was unable to play.
Reus was also unable to feature at the World Cup 2014 in Brazil due to an injury. It has been an extremely unlucky period for the striker, who is regarded as one of the top players for the national team. Since making his debut for Germany in 2011, Reus has only been able to feature in 29 games for the national team.
He has scored nine goals in these matches. Joachim Loew gave the striker his debut, and he is very keen on striker making an impact at a major international tournament. However, he has also stressed that the player’s health remains is top priority. Reus has managed only 13 appearances in the league this season, but he has contributed eight goals in these matches through assists and goals.
“We are waiting for the beginnings in May and we want to evaluate two or three weeks before the season. I would have liked Marco Reus to be there because he was injured in 2014 and 2016. If he holds the next games, the Confed Cup could do him good, but I do not want to take risks with him,” said Loew in response to the possibility of Reus being included in the Confederations Cup 2017 squad.
