Germany and Borussia Dortmund are once again sweating on the fitness of Marco Reus after the attacker suffered a suspected ankle injury on Sunday night.
The 25-year-old was left in visible distress after being levelled by a poor challenge from Charlie Mulgrew in the dying seconds of his country’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Scotland and was immediately replaced by Matthias Ginter.
Reus continued to receive treatment on the sidelines amidst fears that the forward had aggravated the ankle injury that ruled him out of this summer’s World Cup.
Germany boss Joachim Low is trying to remain positive but admitted that the full extent of the damage has not yet been established.
“It seems that it is not totally bad,” the World Cup-winning coach told RTL immediately after his side’s 2-1 victory over the Scots. “But we have to wait for the further examinations.”
Reus also sustained his previous ankle injury while on international duty, in his country’s World Cup warm-up clash with Armenia on June 6.
