Gomez out, 2 others in doubt

Germany's Mario Gomez has been ruled out of the rest of Euro 2016 through injury while Sami Khedira and captain Bastian Schweinsteiger are doubts for Thursday's semi-final, the German Football Federation (DFB) said Sunday.

Gomez underwent a scan on Sunday that showed the striker suffered a torn thigh muscle in the quarter-final victory over Italy and he can play no further part in the tournament, the DFB said.

Juventus midfielder Khedira has a partially torn groin muscle and Manchester United's Schweinsteiger sprained a knee ligament in the penalty shootout win over the Italians on Saturday.

"It is currently in doubt whether Schweinsteiger and Khedira will be able to take any part on Thursday in Marseille or in a possible final in Saint Denis on Sunday," the DFB said in a statement.

Both are receiving intensive medical treatment.
