May 27, 2006

FREIBURG, Germany, May 27 (Reuters) - Germany centre-back Robert Huth twisted his ankle in Saturday's 7-0 win over Luxembourg.

Coach Juergen Klinsmann said the Chelsea defender would have an examination back in Switzerland, where the World Cup hosts will stay until May 30.

No further details were immediately available.

Huth was replaced by Per Mertesacker at halftime in the match.

Germany captain Michael Ballack also has an ankle injury that forced him to miss the Luxembourg game.
