The defender felt pain in his shoulder while warming up for Wednesday's international friendly against Germany, and missed the 3-1 defeat. GAK team doctor Martin Leonhardt believes the injury will not require surgery, although the 21-year-old will be sidelined until mid-September.
Before then GAK visit Liverpool on 24 August trailing 2-0 from the first leg. Pogatetz will also sit out Austria's Group 6 qualifiers against England in Vienna on 4 September and against Azerbaijan at the same venue four days later.
