Mesut Özil will miss the friendly against Saudi Arabia as a precaution after picking up a knee injury.
The German playmaker missed his domestic season run-in after aggravating a back problem in the Europa League semi-final second-leg defeat to Atletico Madrid at the beginning of May. But following his month-long layoff, Özil was back in action on Saturday, scoring the opener against Austria. However, his night ended early after he was forced off with a ‘new injury’ which has restricted his training this week, although some running exercises were possible. The German Football Federation confirmed Özil would not be risked on Friday due to a minor bruise on his left knee. The World Champions begin their defence on June 17 against Mexico, and despite the setback, team director Oliver Bierhoff is expecting Özil to be okay for the finals: "It's nothing dramatic, we just don't want to take any risks and he was able to sprint in training. I assume he will be okay for the World Cup." Jun 7 - 5:19 PM
