Next World Cup failure: Lukas Nmecha will be out for weeks

Lukas Nmecha will definitely miss the World Cup in Qatar! The VfL Wolfsburg center forward injured his knee in the 2-0 home win against BVB on Tuesday and will be out for weeks.

Before that, the 23-year-old scored his fourth goal of the season to make it 2-0. Apparently he had already suffered his knee injury by then. This marks the end of the football year for the U21 European champions. Nmecha had good chances to stand at least as a joker in the German World Cup squad.

For national coach Hansi Flick it is the second failure on the offensive. As is well known, Timo Werner will also be absent injured. When Flick announces his final squad on Thursday (from 12 p.m.), Niclas Füllkrug and Youssoufa Moukoko in particular should now have very good chances of a World Cup ticket.

"It's a pity that Lukas will miss the last competitive game this year and won't be able to attend the World Cup in Qatar. We wish him a quick and smooth recovery," said VfL Managing Director Jörg Schmadtke. At least Nmecha doesn't need an operation and should be fit again after the World Cup break.
