Manchester United have been dealt another injury blow as Bastian Schweinsteiger has been ruled out of Germany’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Republic of Ireland on Thursday due to a thigh problem.

The 31-year-old suffered the injury in Germany’s final training session before Thursday’s match. It is not yet known whether the midfielder will be available for Germany’s final Euro 2016 qualifier against Georgia on Sunday.

Wayne Rooney will also miss England’s final two Euro 2016 qualification games due to an ankle injury and will not travel with Roy Hodgson’s squad to face Lithuania on Monday.

Marcos Rojo also withdrew from the Argentina national side ahead of their games against Ecuador on Thursday and Paraguay next Tuesday. The defender has missed United’s last four matches with a hamstring injury but is looking to recover in time for the match against Everton on October 17.
