Trapp breaks hand in training

March 19, 2013

Germany under-21 goalkeeper Kevin Trapp has been forced to pull out of the squad to face Israel in a friendly on Sunday after breaking his hand in training.

The Eintracht Frankfurt custodian, who has earned plaudits for his performances for the Eagles this season and has been linked with a first senior cap, flew back to Frankfurt on Tuesday to receive further treatment after suffering up the injury during training.

The 22-year-old's season is over as a result, leaving Frankfurt with veteran custodian Oka Nikolov for their remaining eight Bundesliga matches.

Trapp is the fourth player to pull out of Rainer Adrion's under-21 squad with Jan Kirchhoff of Mainz and Freiburg duo Oliver Sorg and Oliver Baumann also withdrawing due to injury.

Adrion has called up Cologne goalkeeper Timo Horn and Sampdoria defender Shkodran Mustafi as cover.
