Germany star ruled out of Northern Ireland clash in World Cup qualifying

Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is set to miss the rest of 2017 with a broken foot, meaning he won't play in next month's World Cup qualifier at Windsor Park.

The World champions arrive to face Northern Ireland on October 5 but will be without their top class goalkeeper, who sustained a broken foot in Bayern Munich training on Monday.

His understudies should be more than capable of rising to the task as Bayer Leverkusen star Bernd Leno and Barcelona's Marc-André ter Stegen were included in Germany's last panel.

Neuer's injury is a recurrence of the hairline fracture to a metatarsal in his left foot that he picked up during the Champions League quarter-final second-leg defeat to Real Madrid in April.

The 31-year-old underwent successful surgery on Tuesday morning and has had a plate fitted - which will rule him out for four months.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club's official website: "Manuel Neuer has sustained another injury and we're incredibly sorry for him. 

"The operation went perfectly, which is the most important thing for now. We and our captain are now looking to the future. Manuel will be back to his previous best and available to us again in January."
