Berlin:

Germany striker Miroslav Klose is an injury doubt for Wednesday's international friendly against France in Paris after injuring his knee playing for his Italian club Lazio.

The 34-year-old, who is just one short of equalling Gerd Mueller's 38-year-old record of 68 goals scored in the Germany shirt, injured his right-knee in his side's 3-2 Serie A defeat at Genoa on Sunday.

On Monday, he flew to Munich to see German team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt before a decision is made whether he joins the squad for the game at Paris' Stade de France.

Germany coach Joachim Loew is already without vice-captain Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has an ankle injury, while Dortmund pair Ilkay Gundogan and Marcel Schmelzer are both carrying knocks.
