The German National Football Team is missing their biggest offensive option Michael Ballack in the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, after a foul by Kevin Prince-Boateng sent him to the sidelines with an injury. He was temporarily replaced by Philipp Lahm as the captain of the team that won the third place in the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany. As one of Germany’s Key players, Ballack’s presence will sure be missed by his team.
Ballack in an interview said that he was really angry that he was robbed of his last chance to play in the most prestigious tournament in the sporting world. But, he accepts the fact that football is just like that. He is currently enjoying the number 6 rank in Germany‚
