The 33-year-old is now a major doubt for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar

The result will be marred by the injury suffered to Dortmund talisman Marco Reus, who was stretchered off in the first half and now will likely be unavailable for Germany in the upcoming World Cup.

The Germany international, who was called up for the Nations League matches against Hungary against England this month, had turned his ankle in the 32nd minute.

Reus sat out Germany’s 2014 World Cup-winning run after being injured in their final warmup game before their departure to Brazil. He also missed Euro 2016 due to injury.
