Everything is fine again! Khedira offers positive fitness update
Sami Khedira has revealed his substitution during Germany's friendly with Spain was just a precautionary measure after suffering a knock to his left knee.
The Juventus midfielder provided the assist for Thomas Muller's equaliser in the 1-1 draw in Dusseldorf before he was hurt in a clash with Thiago Alcantara early in the second half.
Khedira was replaced by Ilkay Gundogan in the 53rd minute but used his personal social media accounts after the game to allay any fears over his fitness.
"It's been a good match against a very tough opponent. We know that it's never easy against Spain!" Khedira tweeted.
"By the way, don't worry about my sub: It was only a precautionary measure after I felt a small induration [sic]. But now everything is fine again!"
