Lukas Podolski ruled out of Algeria clash

Germany's Lukas Podolski has been ruled out of his side's clash against Algeria in the last 16 of the World Cup due to injury.

Lukas Podolski has been ruled out of Germany's last 16 encounter with Algeria on Monday due to a thigh injury.

The 29-year-old, who was withdrawn at half time in Die Mannschaft's 1-0 victory against USA on Thursday, has pulled a muscle in his leg and will now sit out the match in Belo Horizonte.

"Podolski will be missing in the last 16. He's pulled a muscle. He needs two or three days of rest," manager Joachim Low confirmed in a press conference earlier today.

Defender Jerome Boateng also picked up a knock last time out, but Low confirmed that he will be fit to play a part against Algeria if called upon.
