World Champion André Schürrle will not be available to the German national team for the international on the 31.August in Mönchengladbach against Finland and also for the World Cup qualifier on the 4.September in Oslo against Norway.

The Borussia Dortmund midfield player is suffering from slight back problems after a fantastic week for him in the BVB jersey. This is why André Schürrle told the German FA he would not be available right after the first league game of the season against 1. FSV Mainz 05 (2-1).

New signing André Schürrle was involved in all five goals in both of BVB victories this week - 3-0 in the Cup away to Trier, 2-1 in the league against Mainz: he scored one goal himself, he provided the assist for three goals and he played the 'second last' pass for one goal. (br)
