World Champion Bastian Schweinsteiger has been ruled out of the friendlies against England on Saturday in Berlin (20:45 CET) and Italy on Tuesday in Munich (20:45 CET).
The 31-year-old captain suffered a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee following a challenge at the end of training on Tuesday afternoon. The diagnosis was confirmed following an MRI scan at the practice of team doctor Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt in Munich earlier today. His treatment will be carried out by the medical team at his club Manchester United, in consultation with the Germany national team’s doctors.
Mesut Özil and Bellarabi also missed this morning's training session, although the pair have remained at the team hotel for treatment. The Premier League star suffered a knock to his ankle in his Arsenal side’s meeting with Everton on the weekend, while Bellarabi bruised his foot during Leverkusen’s Bundesliga match against VfB Stuttgart on Sunday.
