Hummels doubt for World Cup final

09 July 2014, 20:31

Rio De Janeiro - Germany defender Mats Hummels has cast doubt on his participation in the World Cup final after revealing he needs "intensive treatment" on his knee.

The 25-year-old aggravated the injury he sustained in his side's Group G opener against Portugal, coming off at half-time during Tuesday's 7-1 demolition of Brazil in the semi-finals.

Hummels missed Die Mannschaft's 2-1 win over Algeria in the last-16 due to flu, but was back in the starting line-up five days later for the quarter-final clash with France, where his first-half goal clinched a 1-0 victory for Joachim Low's side.

The Bayern Munich centre-back is now considered doubtful for Sunday's showdown with the winners of the last-four encounter between Argentina and Netherlands on Wednesday.

He told German radio ARD: "More problems with my knee. We will find out the exact diagnosis [on Wednesday].

"There won't be a horror diagnosis, and there is hope that it will be working again in five days. I will definitely need intensive treatment.

"If I can't train on Saturday, I wouldn't go and say I can play on Sunday."
