Leon Goretzka apparently injured himself in the international match against Belgium and had to be substituted in the first half – but gave the all-clear after the game.
The midfielder from FC Bayern already had to play in the first half of the game DFB international match against Belgium to be exchanged.
In a running duel with Romelu Lukaku, the 28-year-old made his 50th appearance for the German national team apparently represented. Goretzka had to be treated on the pitch, and his ankle was heavily bandaged on the sidelines. The Bayern star already gave slight signals of an all-clear.
“My feeling is good. I twisted my ankle because I caught the ball on the toes. But it should be enough until Saturday,” said the Bayern Munich professional with a view to the Bundesliga summit against Borussia Dortmund on the weekend.
Flick changes twice after half an hour
At first there was an immediate hint of another substitution, but when Goretzka was treated off the pitch it seemed like he was giving Hansi Flick a thumbs-up.
However, his former club coach did not want to take any risks and took down Joshua Kimmich’s congenial midfield partner in the 32nd minute. He was replaced by Felix Nmecha, who celebrated his international debut. At the same time, national coach Flick replaced Florian Wirtz with Emre Can.
