BERLIN - Bastian Schweinsteiger played the
last three Bundesliga matches of the season with a broken toe
and is doubtful for Germany's Euro 2012 qualifiers next month,
his club Bayern Munich said on Wednesday.
Schweinsteiger was injured in the 1-1 draw against Eintracht
Frankfurt but still played in the subsequent matches against
Schalke 04, St Pauli and VfB Stuttgart.
"It is still not clear whether Schweinsteiger can be
involved in the three national team matches against Uruguay,
Austria and Azerbaijan," Bayern said on their official website.
Germany host Uruguay in a friendly on May 29 before visiting
Austria on June 3 and Azerbaijan four days later for Euro 2012
qualifiers. They top Group A with 15 points from five games.
Bayern bitterly criticised the Netherlands at the start of
the season for fielding their winger Arjen Robben at last year's
World Cup finals when he had a thigh injury.
Robben missed the first four months of the German season
after Bayern said he aggravated the injury in South Africa.
