Netherlands Vs. Germany, Euro 2012: Bastian Schweinsteiger Holding His Hamstring

Bastian Schweinsteiger has played the best half-plus that he has played in months today, but his day may come to an end soon. The Germany midfielder has injured his hamstring, although the severity of the injury is unknown and it may not be anything of note.

It is unclear when Schweinsteiger hurt his hamstring. There did not appear to be an obvious stretch or fall that could cause a strain, he just started grabbing it and limping a bit. He has stayed on and is running it off so maybe it is just a cramp and nothing to worry about, but for now it is worth watching.

The midfielder is playing his best game in a long time, spraying passes around, helping keep the ball and showing great range to break up Dutch attacks before spurring Germany forays forward. He already has two assists in the game and could easily add another one or two so to see him hurt now, in the midst of a great match, would be a real shame.
