BERLIN - Germany midfielder Sven Bender
has been ruled out of next month's Euro 2012 qualifiers and the
friendly against Uruguay after having knee surgery on Wednesday,
the German football federation (DFB) said.
Bender, who made his debut for Germany in late March against
Australia, is expected to be out for a month. The DFB said coach
Joachim Low will consider whether to replace him.
The 22-year-old is among several young players from
Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund called up by Germany in
the past season.
Germany, who top Group A with a maximum 15 points, play
Austria in Vienna on June 3 before travelling to face Azerbaijan
on June 7. They will meet Uruguay in a friendly on Sunday.
