Marco Reus will miss the UEFA Nations League matches in September. However, his presence in the next World Cup is not ruled out. This Sunday, the Borussia Dortmund board announced that the injury that Woodyinho suffered against Schalke 04 will only take him away from the courts for 3 or 4 weeks.
A physical problem is never a cause for celebration, but there is some relief in knowing the captain won’t be out of action for an extended period. In fact, if the recovery goes as expected, he could be included by Hansi Flick in the list of the German National Team for Qatar 2022.
There is no fracture.
It is an injury to the lateral ligament of the ankle.
