Injury concerns for Germany

Sami Khedira has been ruled out of Germany's Euro 2016 semi-final against France through injury.

Khedira was forced off just 16 minutes into the quarter-final win over Italy after suffering a groin injury and the 29-year-old will not be ready for Thursday's clash in Marseille.

Coach Joachim Low hopes the midfielder will be available for Sunday's final at the Stade de France should Germany overcome the host nation.

"Sami Khedira is definitely not able to play on Thursday," Low said. "We will do everything to see if he can play in a possible final.

Defender Mats Hummels will miss the game through suspension, while striker Mario Gomez has been ruled out of the rest of the tournament because of a hamstring injury.

Captain Basitan Schweinsteiger replaced Khedira on Saturday but he is battling a knee problem and may not be risked against the French.

"I will probably have to bring new players into the line-up. I trust all of my players, even those who have not seen game action," Low explained.

"I won't play anyone who is not 100 per cent fit, but I hope Bastian Schweinsteiger is fit and can play.

"I made the mistake in the past of using a player that was not 100 per cent fit and I will not do it again.

"Schweinsteiger had the energy needed right until the end against Italy - he was impressive.

"We have a physically easier training session on Monday with more recovery than usual, except for the players who did not play on Saturday."
