Foot­ball - Dort­mund winger An­dre Schuer­rle rein­jures right knee

Malta Independent - - SPORT / CLASSIFIEDS -

Borus­sia Dort­mund coach Thomas Tuchel says winger An­dre Schuer­rle rein­jured his right knee in the Cham­pi­ons League match against Real Madrid, in which he scored the late equaliser. Schuer­rle had missed the pre­vi­ous two weeks with the sprain. He came off the bench in the 58th minute and scored in the 87th to sal­vage a 2-2 draw. The in­jury has pre­vented Schuer­rle from be­ing in Ger­many’s squad for the up­com­ing World Cup qual­i­fiers against the Czech Repub­lic and North­ern Ire­land. Schuer­rle says he felt pain in the knee even be­fore scor­ing but had to stay in be­cause Dort­mund had no more sub­sti­tu­tions.
