Injured Bayern Munich players (L-R) Bastian Schweinsteiger, Manuel Neuer and Philipp Lahm all made Germany’s final World Cup roster.

Joachim Low has not cut any of his injured star players, with Philipp Lahm, Manuel Neuer and Bastian Schweinsteiger all making Germany's final 23-man World Cup roster.

Germany, which played Cameron to a 2-2 draw on Sunday without the Bayern Munich trio, is the favorite in the Group of Death featuring the United States, Portugal and Ghana. The nation's final roster includes just one true striker, with 35-year-old veteran Miroslav Klose -- who could top Brazil icon Ronaldo's all-time World Cup goals record this summer -- making the cut.

Also representing Jurgen Klinsmann's home nation are the Arsenal trio of Per Mertesacker, Mesut Ozil and Lukas Podolski; Real Madrid's Sami Khedira, who missed the bulk of the season with a knee injury; and a host of Bayern and Borussia Dortmund talents such as Mario Gotze, Marco Reus and Toni Kroos.

Here is Germany's final roster in full:

GOALKEEPERS: Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich), Roman Weidenfeller (Borussia Dortmund), Ron-Robert Zieler (Hannover).

DEFENDERS: Jerome Boateng (Bayern Munich), Erik Durm (Borussia Dortmund), Kevin Grosskreutz (Borussia Dortmund), Benedikt Hoewedes (Schalke), Mats Hummels (Borussia Dortmund), Marcell Jansen (Hamburg), Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich), Per Mertesacker (Arsenal).
