Jan-Niklas Beste and Manuel Neuer are the latest to withdraw from the German national team through injury

As reported by Sky Germany, Jan-Niklas Beste has been forced to withdraw from the German national team due to injury.

It is understood that the Heidenheim forward suffered an adductor strain during training and will be out for up to ten days. This will, therefore, see Beste miss Germany’s upcoming fixtures against France and the Netherlands. 

According to the report, Beste underwent an MRI scan on Wednesday, where his diagnosis was confirmed, and the 25-year-old will depart Germany’s training camp in Frankfurt later today. However, Beste is only the latest player to withdraw from injury, with Manuel Neuer suffering a torn muscle fibre in his left adductor, as confirmed by the DFB on Wednesday. 

This will see Barcelona shot-stopper Marc-André ter Stegen step in for the injured Neuer. The former Borussia Mönchengladbach goalkeeper had started eight of the last eleven fixtures for the German national team and was in contention to become Germany’s newly established number one.

However, as reported by Sky Germany, head coach Julian Nagelsmann was set to go back to making Neuer his number-one choice. Regardless, Beste and Neuer now join 19-year-old Aleksandar Pavlović on the list of those who have had to withdraw through injury as Naglesmann’s squad continues to deplete.
