German national team manager Joachim Low has confirmed Bastian Schweinsteiger will take part in the team’s final training session ahead of their game against Georgia.
The Manchester United midfielder picked up a thigh injury in the warm-up before Germany’s 1-0 loss to the Republic of Ireland and played no part in the game. The skipper is still a doubt for the game with Georgia but Low will be hoping that Schweinsteiger is fit.
Following their loss to Ireland, Germany need at least a point against Georgia to ensure qualification for the European Championships next summer. A game which many would have thought would not have much meaning has now turned into a crucial one and Low will want his captain.
“Bastian Schweinsteiger will take part in the final training session and then we will decide on his availability,” the German head coach said at his press conference.
Man United fans may be hoping that their midfield maestro does not appear for his country against Georgia. Since his arrival at the club, United supporters have taken to Schweinsteiger and are enjoying watching his performances in the middle of the park.
There was always a question over the World Cup winner’s fitness when he signed for United but he has proven doubters wrong, completing 90 minutes on numerous occasions this season for both club and country. However, if there is any doubt over his thigh injury, his club will be hoping their player is not risked and he is available for United’s trip to Everton in a week’s time.
