Sun sets on Westermann

Germany received a further blow in this woe-begotten month of injury news as versatile defender/midfielder Heiko Westermann was ruled out of the World Cup with a foot injury picked up in the game against Hungary.

Westermann’s ability to play both wing-back positions and in defensive midfield was to be integral for a German side looking to compensate for the losses of both Michael Ballack and Simon Rolfes and later, Christian Traesch.

It is highly unlikely that Loew will now call in a replacement and either of Jansen and/or Aogo is now a guaranteed starter.

Another option is for Holger Badstuber to fill in the left-back role, something he has done often for Bayern this season, although it is markedly not his best position.

Heiko is out
