Flick also picked out the unselected duo, Werder Bremen striker Niklas Woelkrug and 17-year-old Dortmund striker Youssouf Moukoko.

Besides Reus, there have been several notable absences in the squad, including fellow Dortmund team-mate Mats Hummels and Inter Milan full-back Ruben Goossens.

Former Chelsea striker Timo Werner was ruled out in early November with a leg injury.

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has overcome shoulder problems in recent times to be named captain, while fellow Bayern Munich veteran Thomas Müller has been included despite a back problem that has restricted his appearances since late September.

Flick confirmed that Rios will miss the tournament due to an ankle problem he suffered in September.

Rios, 33, missed the 2014 World Cup due to a foot injury he picked up in the final friendly before leaving for South America, while he was also cut out for Euro 2016 due to fitness issues.

Reus played his only World Cup in Russia in 2018, scoring both of Germany’s goals in the tournament as they were eliminated in the group stage.
