Goetze suffers hamstring tear

Germany's rising teenage star Mario Goetze will miss Borussia Dortmund's final two games of 2011 after tearing his hamstring at the weekend, it was revealed today.

The 19-year-old suffered the injury in yesterday's 1-1 home draw with Kaiserslautern after coming off the bench to play the last 25 minutes. After a scan on Monday, Borussia's team doctor Markus Braun confirmed the news.

Goetze will sit out Dortmund's league game at bottom side Freiburg on Saturday and the third-round German Cup match against second division Fortuna Duesseldorf on 20 December with a place in the quarter-finals at stake.

Goetze had injured his groin in last week's UEFA Champions League defeat by Marseille before his brief appearance against Kaiserslautern.
