Germany blow as Mustafi ruled out of tournament

Germany defender Shkodran Mustafi will miss the rest of the World Cup after he tore muscle fibres in his left thigh during Monday night's 2-1 win over Algeria. "He's not going to play any further part in this World Cup," said Germany coach Joachim Low.

Meanwhile, the cramp which forced Bastian Schweinsteiger to leave the field earlier than planned is not likely to jeopardise his chances of featuring against France.

"It's nothing bad," said Low.
