15.08.2006: Ballack out of Sweden friendly

German international captain Michael Ballack will miss Germany’s friendly match with Sweden on Wednesday with a hip injury, the German Football Federation (DFB) confirmed on Sunday.

Ballack injured his left hip in Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool in the Community Shield final on Sunday and phoned Germany coach Joachim Löw afterwards to declare himself unfit for the Sweden match.

Since Christoph Metzelder and Sebastian Kehl from Borussia Dortmund are both unable to play because of knee injuries, Löw has called up defender Malik Fathi of Hertha BSC Berlin. 22-year-old Fathi has played 18 times for the Under-21 National team, but is uncapped for the Senior National team.
