Frankfurt and Germany lose Angerer

Germany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer will miss not only this week's qualifiers against Spain and Switzerland but also the rest of 1. FFC Frankfurt's season after a setback with her knee injury.

Germany goalkeeper Nadine Angerer will miss not only this week's qualifiers against Spain and Switzerland but also the rest of 1. FFC Frankfurt's season after suffering a setback in her recovery from a knee injury.

The 33-year-old has been out for several weeks but was earmarked to return for Germany in Saturday's UEFA Women's EURO 2013 visit of Spain. However, a setback meant that she underwent keyhole surgery on Friday where cartilage damage was diagnosed, meaning a three-month absence. The news will come as a blow to Frankfurt as they take on Arsenal LFC in the UEFA Women's Champions League semi-finals on 15 and 21 April.

Desirée Schumann, who took Angerer's place in Frankfurt's 3-1 aggregate quarter-final elimination of FC Malmö, has also been called up to the Germany squad, though Almuth Schult is set to start against Spain and in Thursday's Group 2 trip to Switzerland.
