Blow for Germany as Reus out of World Cup

Germany midfielder Marco Reus has been ruled out of the World Cup with an ankle injury, BBC Sport reports.



The Borussia Dortmund player was visibly in tears after partially tearing a ligament during Germany’s 6-1 win over Armenia on Friday. Reus was taken to hospital after the game where it was confirmed that he would be out for six or seven weeks.


A statement on the DfB website by coach Joachim Loew read: "That's most unfortunate for him and us. Marco had been in great form, left an superb impression in the training camp and in both matches against Cameroon and Armenia. He played a central role in our plans for Brazil."


Reus, 25, is the second German midfielder to be ruled out of the World Cup after Lars Bender suffered a thigh injury in training. Despite this, Loew has called up former Everton defender Shkodran Mustafi as Reus’ replacement.


"It is not about us replacing Marco Reus one on one. Our quality in the position behind the strikers is very high. We have Lukas Podolski, Andre Schurrle, Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil, Julian Draxler and Toni Kroos to give us plenty of alternatives.”


The win over Armenia saw Miroslav Klose become Germany’s all-time leading goalscorer but the game was marred by the injury to Reus. The Germans fly out to Brazil on Saturday where they will face Portugal, USA and Ghana in Group G.
