Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has been ruled out of Friday's UEFA EURO 2012 qualifier against Turkey because of a right foot injury, the German Football Federation (DFB) confirmed on Monday.

He will also miss the match against Kazakhstan in Astana on 12 October. The 26-year-old Bayern Munich player picked up the injury during Sunday's Bundesliga game against Borussia Dortmund.

Hamburg defender Marcell Jansen will also miss Germany's next two EURO 2012 qualifiers, the DFB added. Germany are top of Group A, equal on six points with second-placed Turkey, after two games.
