Germany striker Klose doubtful for Italy, England matches

Berlin: Germany forward Miroslav Klose could be doubtful for their friendly internationals against Italy and England in the coming days after suffering a shoulder injury on Sunday, the team said on Monday.

Klose, joint Germany all-time top scorer with 68 goals, was injured in Lazio`s 1-1 draw against Parma in the Serie A and taken off six minutes from time.

"He is now in Munich, being treated by federation doctors," the German football association said in a statement.

The 35-year-old had only returned to action in October after undergoing foot surgery that had ruled him out for a month.

Germany, who have qualified for next year`s World Cup in Brazil, will play Italy in Milan on November 15 before taking on England in London four days later.
