The striker will not be able to participate in the World Cup since he suffered an ankle injury during his club’s most recent match in the Champions League.
Timo Werner, a center striker for Germany, sustained an injury to his left ankle while playing for RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday night. According to a statement released by the club on Thursday, Werner was forced to withdraw from the FIFA World Cup as a result of the injury.
Since Timo Werner (55 caps, 24 goals) has been the starting striker for the Nationalmannschaft in recent months, this is disappointing information for Germany coach Hansi Flick, who is scheduled to make his list of 26 players selected for the World Cup in Qatar (November 20-December 18) in a week. The tournament will take place from November 20 to December 18. The investigations that took place on Thursday in Leipzig found that there was an injury to the patient’s ankle. “The eastern German club explained that Timo Werner will be sidelined for the rest of the year, formalizing the center-package forward for the 2022 World Cup, which will begin in Qatar in two and a half weeks.
Timo Werner suffered an injury to his left ankle after being taken down by Shakhtar captain Taras Stepanenko during the 13th minute of the encounter against the Ukrainians of Donetsk on Wednesday evening in Warsaw. The match was being played against the Ukrainians of Donetsk. The Leipzig forward attempted to continue playing, but he swiftly communicated to his bench that he needed to be substituted a few minutes later. “This is pretty disappointing news. It hurts me on a personal level because Timo won’t be able to play in the World Cup, which was something he desperately wanted to do. But more than anything else for the team, not having Timo around is a significant blow,” Hansi Flick replied. We hope that he can quickly go back to his old self.
Werner made his return to the club where he blossomed at the top level from 2016 to 2020 after being transferred from Chelsea to Leipzig this summer. He did so in the hopes of finding playing time for the World Cup. Alongside Kai Havertz, Werner is one of the two unquestionable center-forwards for the Nationalmannschaft. In terms of selection, his most recent performances had not particularly inspired confidence, except for the game he played against Italy in the League of Nations in June 2022. (doubled in the 5-2 victory for Germany).
