World Cup 2010: Swiss striker Marco Streller ruled out


Switzerland's World Cup qualifying highlights

Switzerland forward Marco Streller will miss the World Cup in South Africa after injuring his thigh in training.

Coach Ottmar Hitzfeld is expected to replace the 28-year-old Streller with Albert Bunjaku or Nassim Ben Khalifa from his reserve list.

Bunjaku, who plays for German club Nuremberg, would be the third player of Kosovo descent in the squad.

Ben Khalifa, now 18, starred when Switzerland won the Under-17 World Cup last year.

In July, Khalifa will leave Grasshopper Zurich to join Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, where he will work under the German club's new coach Steve McClaren.
