Germany Confirmed Marco Reus Absence in World Cup 2014

That bad news that many German fans were not keen on hearing eventually occurred as their national team are leaving to Brazil without Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus, who was forced out from the team’s World Cup squad due to injury.

It was a decision that head coach Joachim Loew made right after discovering that Reus has picked up a pretty serious ankle injury which will take at least two months of recovery time.

In place of the Dortmund star, Loew apparently isn’t keen on finding a player with similar characteristic as he believes, his current squad already have those players, but instead the tactician opted to add another defender by calling up Shkodran Mustafi from Sampdoria.

The talented defender went on with the whole German squad as they fly to Brazil in a bid to fulfill their fans hope of winning their fourth World Cup title. It won’t be easy though as playing in South America will give many obstacles for any European team including Loew’s men.

Moreover, without Reus, they are surely missing out on an exciting attacking talent that can always bring something into the pitch each time he is being given an opportunity.
