Injured Deisler out of Germany friendly against US

BERLIN, March 15 (Reuters) - Midfielder Sebastian Deisler
will miss Germany's World Cup warm-up against the United States
next week because of a right knee injury, Bayern Munich said on

Bayern said an arthroscopy would be needed to determine
exactly how serious the injury was. Deisler would definitely
miss Sunday's Bundesliga game against Schalke 04 as well as the
friendly international on March 22 in Dortmund.

The injury-prone Deisler has had four operations on his
troublesome right knee.
