Ballack Out For The Final

A report this afternoon stated that Michael Ballack could potentially miss Sunday’s Euro 2008 Final against Spain.

Soccernet reported that Ballack suffered an injury to his right calf. The German midfielder missed training on Friday and then again on Saturday night—24 hours before the match.

The effects of not having their star midfielder in the final could be devastating for the Germans.

Ballack has been hot and cold all tournament long—scoring two goals but also struggling against Croatia. Regardless, Ballack is incredibly important to his side and would be sorely missed.

Spain’s major weakness against the Germans will likely be in the air and without Ballack the German’s will be without one of their most dangerous aerial weapons.

The German Football Association said that the situation on whether Ballack would play or not is still “fully open.”

Can Germany win without their captain?
