Eurosport reported that Reus was not selected for Germany’s World Cup squad due to an ankle injury. Reus has been struggling with the ankle injury of late and was unable to shake it before the German squad was announced.

Reus injured 2 months ago

Reus was originally injured in September during a game against Schalke 04. The German international landed awkwardly, damaging the ligaments in his ankle. He had to be stretchered off the field. It was feared that the injury alone would have ruled him out of the tournament. He then returned much sooner than anyone expected.
