Germany provide explanation for Antonio Rudiger’s absence vs North Macedonia


The German national team have this evening provided an explanation for Antonio Rudiger’s absence from their matchday squad to face North Macedonia.

Rudi doubts

Concern surrounding the wellbeing of Chelsea standout Rudiger of course began to spread over the weekend.

The 28-year-old, fresh off a stellar opening to the campaign, was unsurprisingly called up by Germany last week, for the nation’s latest round of international fixtures.

Rudiger started and featured for all 90 minutes on Friday night, as Die Mannschaft got the better of Romania in a World Cup qualifying clash.

In turn, it was no doubt viewed as a blow by supporters of not only Germany, but also Chelsea, when word began to do the rounds on Sunday afternoon that the former AS Roma man had played no part in the former’s latest training session.
