Germany in doubt for Marco Reus for World Cup over injury

German club’s Borussia Dortmund captain Marco Reus is again in danger of missing the major tournament, World Cup for Germany. After an ankle injury, the 33-year-old was stretchered off in the first half of Dortmund’s Ruhr derby against Schalke on Saturday with what looked like a serious ankle injury.

Moreover, Reus was in tears after bending his right ankle unnaturally in a challenge for the ball with Schalke’s Florian Flick.

Reus in the squad for the upcoming international games against Hungary and England and the management was counting on the attacking midfielder as a key member of World Cup squad. The tournament kicks off later in November in Qatar.

Germany has their fixtures against Japan, Spain and Costa Rica.

Reus has been entangled by injuries at unwanted times throughout his career. He missed Germany’s World Cup win in 2014 with an ankle injury which occurred during a warm-up game, and a groin injury ruled him out of the 2016 European Championship.

However, there has been no immediate word from the Dortmund management on the cause of Reus’s injury. The German was still receiving treatment in the changing room before halftime and was about to be brought to a hospital.
