Toni Kroos to miss San Marino, Italy matches

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Real Madrid mid­fielder Toni Kroos will miss Ger­many's up­com­ing World Cup qual­i­fier against San Marino and the friendly against Italy be­cause of a foot in­jury.

The Ger­man soc­cer fed­er­a­tion says Kroos has a hair­line frac­tion in his right foot and will be un­able to prac­tice for 10 days.

Ger­many plays San Marino on Fri­day and meets Italy on Tues­day in Mi­lan. The Ger­mans lead their group af­ter win­ning their first three matches.

The team is seek­ing to win the group and gain a di­rect berth in the 2018 World Cup tour­na­ment in Rus­sia, where it hopes to de­fend its ti­tle.
