Germany have left Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus out of their final 23-man Euro 2016 squad due to injury.

Joachim Low has trimmed his squad and there is no place for the Borussia Dortmund star, with Karim Bellarabi, Julian Brandt and Sebastian Rudy also omitted.

The four players have now left the training camp in Switzerland where Germany are currently preparing for Sunday's friendly with Hungary ahead of their Euro 2016 opener against Ukraine.

Low confirmed that Reus is struggling physically telling a press conference: "It has been a bitter decision for us and for him [Reus], and a disappointment for us all.

"Marco Reus in a good shape and healthy and fit -that would have been a tremendous asset to our team.

"I thank the four players, they presented themselves very well in training, they gave everything and I hope they put away this disappointment well, it is not a decision against four players but a decision for 23 players."

Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Bernd Leno (Bayer Leverkusen), Marc-Andre ter Stegen (Barcelona)

Defenders: Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Emre Can (Liverpool), Jonas Hector (Cologne), Benedikt Howedes (Schalke), Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund), Shkodran Mustafi (Valencia), Antonio Rudiger (Roma)
