Germany forward Thomas Mueller looks set to miss Wednesday’s crucial Euro 2020 match against Hungary with a knee injury after again sitting out team training.

The attacking midfielder missed Tuesday morning’s session with the German squad and trained alone with his knee heavily strapped after taking a knock in Saturday’s 4-2 win over Portugal in Group F. However, Mats Hummels and Ilkay Gundogan, who also sat out training on Monday alongside Mueller, joined the squad session Tuesday, having shaken off knee and calf injuries respectively.

If Mueller drops out, his Bayern Munich team-mate Leon Goretzka is poised to take his place against the Hungarians.
