Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus’s injury problems continued on Sunday evening as he failed to finish Germany’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Scotland.
The 25-year-old attacking midfielder started the 2014 World Cup winners’ opening game of Group D and played well, especially in the first half, at the Signal Iduna Park.
Reus, who was linked with Manchester United and Barcelona in the summer transfer window, tested Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall on a couple of occasions.
With Germany leading Scotland 2-1 in the final minutes of the encounter, Reus suffered an ankle injury and had to be helped off the pitch.
Reus was able to walk back to the Germany dressing room, but he was clearly in pain. Incidentally, it is the same ankle that he hurt just days before the World Cup during a friendly international against Armenia and had to miss the tournament as a result.
Tests are expected to be carried out on the German’s knee, with national team coach Joachim Low telling RTL after the match: ‘We still know nothing definite, but it is probably not as bad as it seemed. But we have to wait for the tests’.
It will be a big blow for Dortmund if Reus is sidelined for a lengthy period of time.
