Why Isn’t Sami Khedira Playing for Germany vs. Argentina?

Sami Khedira


Star midfielder Sami Khedira was pulled from Germany’s lineup just minutes before the World Cup final against Argentina after suffering a calf injury during warmups.

Christoph Kramer was inserted into the starting lineup in Khedira’s place, but had to come off himself after he suffered a head injury and then later had to be helped off the field.

Khedira, who plays for Real Madrid, scored the fifth of seven goals during Germany’s 7-1 rout of Brazil in the semifinals.

He was a transfer target of Arsenal in the English Premiere League before his stock dropped after a knee injury.
