Arsenal star playmaker Mesut Özil is expected to recover from his knee injury for their Euro 2016 qualifiers against Poland on Friday and Scotland next week according to Germany assistant coach Thomas Schneider.
The Gunners star missed the Premier League game against Newcastle United on the weekend due to injury and was expected to miss the Germany international games but is now expected to recover in time for team training on Wednesday.
“Mesut has knee problems,” Schneider was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“A minor inflammation. He will not be training today but will exclusively be treated for the injury.”
“But tomorrow he will be undergoing an individual training session and we will see until the game. There is no prognosis yet from me but we have the best medical department and I am confident we will get him ready.”
Germany will play twice within the span of three days next week and are currently second in Group D just one point behind Poland.
The Polish national team beat Germany 2-0 last year at home.
Germany take on Poland in Frankfurt before travelling to Glasgow to face Scotland three days later.
Özil is one of three Germany international players of Turkish origin – the others being Liverpool star Emre Can and Borussia Dortmund midfielder İlkay Gündoğan.
