Thomas Muller among Germans suffering from flu?

Germany top scorer Thomas Muller is believed to be one of the seven players struck down by flu prior to their World Cup quarter-final against France on Friday.

Germany top scorer Thomas Muller is reportedly one of the seven players who has been struck down by flu ahead of their World Cup quarter-final with France.

Joachim Low revealed on Thursday that a third of his squad were suffering with flu symptoms 24 hours before they were due to face Les Bleus in Rio de Janeiro.

He refused to confirm the names of those feeling under the weather, but the Daily Mail claims that Bayern Munich star Muller, who has scored four goals at the tournament, is one of them.

The infection first got into the Germany camp when Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels fell sick earlier this week and was forced to miss their extra-time win over Algeria in the second round.

Despite the illness scare, Low is confident that he will have a full squad to choose from at the Maracana.

Thomas Muller celebrates scoring his hattrick for Germany in their World Cup opening game against Portugal on June 16, 2014.
