Germany´s Schweinsteiger fit to face Welsh

30 March 2009 16:10

BERLIN (AFP) - Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is fit to face Wales for Wednesday's World Cup qualifier at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium, despite picking up a groin strain last weekend.

Bayern Munich's Schweinsteiger scored Germany's third goal in the 4-0 win over minnows Liechtenstein in Leipzig on Saturday, but missed Monday's training session as a precautionary measure to help his groin recover.

"Bastian has a slight groin strain, but there is no danger of him missing the Wales game," said Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff.

"The fact he missed training was just a precautionary measure, he just needs another half day of rest."

And Hamburg winger Piotr Trochowski, who scored the winner against the Welsh in Germany's 1-0 World Cup qualifier win last October, is fit for selection having missed the Liechtenstein win with a knee injury.
