The dream of Timo Werner playing in the World Cup dream has regrettably been dashed as the RB Leipzig and Germany forward will not be able to feature in the tournament due to an ankle injury.
After tearing his ankle ligament on Wednesday while playing for RB Leipzig in the Champions League, Germany’s Timo Werner will be unable to participate at the World Cup.
Following a challenge from Taras Stepanenko of Shakhtar Donetsk in the first half, the former Chelsea player went down hurt and was replaced after struggling to continue.
After being substituted in the 4-0 victory over Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday, Werner was later diagnosed with a damaged left syndesmosis ligament.
Werner will therefore be absent for the remainder of 2022, including the World Cup in Qatar.
“A very tough one to take for me! I will be out for the next weeks, will miss the World Cup and will have to support @RBLeipzig and @DFB_Team from the couch unfortunately ?? thanks for all your messages.” – Werner wrote on his twitter page.

Timo Werner left Chelsea in search of consistent playing time with the goal of competing in the World Cup, but he is now restricted to watching from his TV.
After spending two seasons with Chelsea, he returned to Leipzig in August. He has nine goals in 16 games for the Bundesliga club, but he won’t be traveling to Qatar.
The information is disappointing for Germany head coach Hansi Flick as he gears up for his first big tournament in command starting on November 23 against Japan.
