Sami Khedira has picked up a ligament tear in his right knee during the friendly between Germany and Italy when he collided with Andrea Pirlo. German FA (DFB) have confirmed on their website of a torn ACL for Khedira.
Some spanish reports are saying this means Khedira is out for six months which is definitely a huge blow to Real Madrid and his match fitness chances for World Cup in 2014.
This isn’t the first time an international break has ruined things for us. It happened for Marcelo with Brazil, Cristiano and Isco had slight niggling issues as well, Di Maria and Varane also had injury scares in the recent past.
