Germany’s chances at the upcoming Euro 2012 tournament have been significantly boosted with the news that influential midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has fully recovered from a calf strain. The 90-cap veteran is essential to the Germans plans and having him in the side is integral to much of the team’s plans.
The Bayern Munich star had been struggling with the problem for a couple of weeks, with fears that Schweinsteiger could miss Germany’s opening match of the tournament against Portugal. The fears have been dispelled, though, with the team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt confirming the midfielder has fully recovered and ready to start the tournament.
“Bastian has absolutely no problems anymore. He has no pain.”
“Of course he is a bit behind the others in terms of training, but I expect him to be fully available for the Portugal game,” added Dr Muller-Wohlfahrt.
Having Schweinsteiger available from the start of the tournament will be a massive boost to German head coach Joachim Low, who will go into this summer’s Euros with a deserved belief that his team could go all the way and replicate their success from 1996. Indeed the euro 2012 betting through Bet Victor has them as second favourites behind holders and current world champions Spain,
The Germans will certainly need to be at their best from their first group game against Portugal, with Holland and Denmark making up the tournament’s toughest looking groups.
