Germany have named a preliminary 27-man squad ahead of Euro 2016.

The reigning World Champions have reached at least the semi-final stages of the previous two European Championships but have failed to win the title since 1996. 

Manager Joachim Low has named three Premier League based players in Emre Can, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mesut Ozil. Unlike Spain's announcement on Tuesday morning, there are no major omissions from the squad.  

Germany begin their Euro 2016 campaign Ukraine in Lille on June 12th. Nine days later they conclude their Group C campaign against Northern Ireland in Paris.

Low has only one friendly, against Slovakia, before he has to cut his squad to 23 players before the May 31st deadline.
