German national team player Mario Götze may miss match with Azerbaijan

Leading player of German national team Mario Gotze will probably miss 2018 World Cup qualifying group match against Azerbaijani team in Baku.

Report informs citing Bild that Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has said the club are not expecting Mario Gotze to return in the near future.

Gotze, 24, was ruled out "for the time being" when a comprehensive internal investigation revealed the Germany international has 'metabolic disturbances'.

Notably, a hero of the final match in the 2014 World Cup against Argentina, Mario Gotze last time played in 66th minute of match against Mainz

Azerbaijan vs. Germany match will be held at Tofig Bahramov Stadium, March 26.
