FC Yahoo

The 2018 World Cup is near. How do we know? Because Monday was deadline day for teams to submit their final 23-man squads to FIFA. And as of 11 a.m. ET, all 32 are in.

Without a doubt the biggest news of deadline day came out of Germany. Manager Joachim Low dropped Leroy Sane, the Premier League’s Young Player of the Year, as he cut his squad from 27 down to 23.
