Freier out of Euro 2004
Germany midfielder Paul Freier
Freire has won 17 caps for Germany
Germany midfielder Paul Freier has been ruled out of Euro 2004 after damaging knee ligaments during the warm-up match against Malta on Thursday.

The German Football Association said medical tests showed that Freier would not be fit in time for the tournament.

A replacement has yet to be named, but Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is thought to be a leading contender.

Freier joins team-mate Christian Rahn in missing out because of injury.

Germany coach Rudi Voeller named a 22-man squad and will select a 23rd player before 2 June.
