Mueller injured in bike accident
Germany forward Thomas Mueller has been cut on the chin and has
scraped his knee after falling off a mountain bike.
The 20-year-old Bayern Munich upstart was riding Wednesday as
part of a training session at Germany’s camp in northern Italy.
Mueller arrived in the camp a day earlier, having played in the
Champions League final for Bayern.
The German soccer federation says Mueller needed stitches on his
chin but his bones and muscles are fine and he will still play in
the World Cup.
Germany has been hit by a series of injuries to its World Cup
squad, including captain Michael Ballack, who won’t play because of
an ankle injury he picked up in the FA Cup final for Chelsea.
