Neuer hit by injury blow

Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer has been ruled out of Germany's friendly with England in Dortmund with a calf injury.

Neuer, widely regarded as the world's leading keeper, will miss the meeting with Gareth Southgate's side as well as the World Cup qualifier away to Azerbaijan on Sunday, the Germany Football Federation (DFB) announced.

The 30-year-old will instead remain with Bayern to undergo treatment in the hope he will be fit when the Bavarians return to Bundesliga action after the international break.

Germany boss Joachim Low has called up uncapped Paris St Germain shot-stopper Kevin Trapp as a replacement for Neuer, and he joins Bayer Leverkusen's Bernd Leno and Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the squad.
