For the Bayern stars, the 2022 World Cup is mostly not going according to plan. This is not only due to the weak DFB performance, but also to the injuries suffered. While Sadio Mané injured himself before the World Cup, Lucas Hernández tore his cruciate ligament at the start. Noussair Mazraoui and Leory Sané are also currently injured.
Leroy Sané had to watch idly as the DFB team messed up the start against Japan. The offensive player is currently suffering from a knee injury, which could also become a problem before the duel against Spain. According to Sport1 it will be "very, very tight" at Sané. A decision about the operational capability of the Bayern player should only be made on Sunday and thus on the day of the game itself.
Right-back Mazraoui was able to play in the opening game, unlike Sané, but had to be substituted in the first half as Moroccans drew 0-0 with Croatia. Kicker editor Georg Holzner gave the all-clear at least in relation to Bayern and explained that the player will not be out of action for long. The report does not state how his further chances of playing at the World Cup are. Morocco play Belgium on Sunday before their final group match against Canada on Thursday.
