SINGAPORE - The likes of Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and 2014 World Cup winner Thomas Muller are set to dazzle at the Singapore National Stadium from July 25-29.

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich announced the squad consisting of 18 first-team players and several reserve and Under-19 players on Friday (July 7).

Fans, however, will not have a chance to catch Germany's No. 1 goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in action due to his metatarsal injury.

In addition to Neuer, the Bayern players at the Confederations Cup (Joshua Kimmich, Sebastian Rudy, Niklas Sule, Arturo Vidal) plus the U-21 European champion Serge Gnabry will not travel to Asia either. The quintet will be enjoying a well-deserved rest after their excellent run at their respective tournaments, winning both titles.

Bayern squad for ICC:

Christian Fruchtl, Tom Starke, David Alaba, Juan Bernat, Jerome Boateng, Rafinha, Marco Friedl, Javi Martinez, Mats Hummels, Kingsley Coman, Douglas Costa, Renato Sanches, Corentin Tolisso, Thiago Alcantara, Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Thomas Muller, Robert Lewandowski
