STUTTGART - Sami Khedira may miss the upcoming World Cup as the Germany and VfB Stuttgart midfielder has partly torn ligaments in his left knee.
Stuttgart said yesterday that Khedira, 22, sustained the injury during Saturday's 2-1 victory at Bayern Munich.
The club said there is hope that he may be back in four weeks if things go very well. Khedira will probably not have to undergo surgery but is receiving conservative treatment in order to make the team for the June 11-July 11 World Cup in South Africa. - Sapa-DPA
