Marco Reus endured more injury heartache with Germany on Tuesday -- his 27th birthday -- as he was cut from their final Euro 2016 squad, two years after missing the World Cup.

A groin injury means Reus joins Julian Brandt, Sebastian Rudy and Karim Bellarabi as the four names cut from Germany's final 23-man squad while injured captain Bastian Schweinsteiger, who tore his knee ligaments in March, is included.
