BERLIN - Germany's Sami Khedira has
recovered from a thigh muscle injury and could be fit for their
two Euro 2012 qualifiers in early June, assistant coach Hansi
Flick said on Tuesday.
Holding midfielder Khedira was forced to miss the 2-1
friendly win over Uruguay on Sunday and returned to individual
training only on Monday.
"With Sami Khedira everything is going according to plan. He
trained with the football yesterday and will do it again today.
As far as the injury is concerned it has healed," Flick told
"If he is fit he will play but if we see a risk then it is
also our obligation to the player, to be careful. We will know
for sure if he can play after Thursday's training."
Germany, who top their Euro qualifying group with five wins
from as many matches, travel to Austria on June 3 before taking
on Azerbaijan four days later.
With fellow holding midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger ruled
out through injury, Toni Kroos could slip into a more defensive
"Toni has played successfully in that position in the past,"
