Reus ruled out of Faroe Islands clash

The Borussia Dortmund forward, who started against Austria on Friday, is suffering from gastroenteritis and will miss Germany's World Cup 2014 qualifier on Tuesday
Joachim Low's Germany side will need to make do without Marco Reus for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Faroe Islands.

The 24-year-old forward started Friday's 3-0 win over Austria, assisting Toni Kroos's goal at the Allianz Arena, before making way for Julian Draxler before the finish.

However, he has since been diagnosed with a bout of gastroenteritis and will return to Dortmund for treatment.

A statement from the German FA read: "Marco Reus will not fly with the German national team to the Faroe Islands.

"The 24-year-old is suffering from a gastrointestinal infection."

Germany remain unbeaten in Group C, having won six and drawn one of their seven matches, and can qualify for Brazil 2014 with a win in Torshavn, if Sweden fail to beat Kazakhstan in Astana.

In contrast, Lars Olsen's Faroe Islands side have lost all seven of their qualifiers.
