Switzerland’s Djourou ruled out of Slovenia, England qualifiers

Switzerland's Johan Djourou ruled out of Slovenia, England qualifiersSwitzerland defender Johan Djorou (55/1) is set to miss the national team’s Euro 2016 qualifiers vs Slovenia and England through injury.

The 28-year-old started all six qualifying matches as Rossocrociati climbed to second in Group E standings, but he will not be able to help his side in the crucial qualifiers taking place in September.

Djourou has suffered a muscle tear while representing his club in German Bundesliga and is set for a three-week spell on the sidelines.

This means he is certain to miss 5 September home clash with Slovenia, where Switzerland are 1.50 (1/2) favourites to claim maximum points and secure their place at the Euro 2016.

The days later, Rossocrociati will be facing England at Wembley, but that match won’t matter much if Vladimir Petkovic’s charges win the clash in Basel.

In the absence of Johan Djourou, either Timm Klose (9/0) or Steve von Bergen (49/0) will form a centre-back pairing with Fabian Schar (13/5).
