Foot frac­ture rules Kroos out for Ger­many

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -


Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos is the lat­est Ger­many star ruled out of Fri­day’s 2018 World Cup qual­i­fier away to San Marino with a frac­tured foot. The 26-year-old misses the qual­i­fier, four days be­fore Ger­many’s friendly against Italy in Mi­lan, with a hair­line frac­ture of the metatarsal bone. Span­ish sports daily Marca say the Ger­man in­ter­na­tional may need surgery and claims Kroos could be ruled out for up to three months. He suf­fered the in­jury in Sun­day’s 3-0 Span­ish league win over Le­ganes and can not train for the next ten days, the Ger­man Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (DFB) an­nounced yes­ter­day. Kroos had the in­jury con­firmed af­ter a scan in Mu­nich with the na­tional team doc­tor Hans-Wil­helm Mueller-Wohlfahrt. The at­tack­ing mid­fielder joins cen­tre­back Jerome Boateng, who was forced out of Ger­many’s qual­i­fier af­ter in­jur­ing the groin and knee on his right leg in Bay­ern Mu­nich’s 1-1 draw with Hof­fen­heim on Satur­day. —AFP
