Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger's participation in Sunday's World Cup second round clash against England will be decided only hours before the match as the Germans hold out hope he could be fit to play. The 25-year-old playmaker, who plays a key role in their young squad with the absence of injured captain Michael Ballack, picked up a thigh muscle injury in their final Group D match against Ghana. He has missed the team training for the past two days.
Defender Jerome Boateng is also doubtful following his calf muscle injury in the same game. Both players trained lightly on Saturday.
"We will take the final decision tomorrow and the last training where we will see how fit they are," said goalkeeping coach Andreas Koepke, who replaced coach Joachim Loew at the final pre-match news conference on Saturday.
