Austria's Alaba to miss WCup qualifier vs. Germany

Austria's Alaba to miss WCup qualifier vs. Germany

Austria coach Marcel Koller has left injured midfielder David Alaba out of his squad for next month's 2014 World Cup qualifier against Germany.
The Bayern Munich player fractured his left foot in July and is unlikely to recover in time for the Sept. 11 game in Vienna.
Werder Bremen winger Marko Arnautovic, who missed Austria's 2-0 win over Turkey this month with a thigh injury, returns to the 23-man squad announced by Koller on Tuesday.
Defender Franz Schiemer replaces Paul Scharner, who has been expelled from the national team following a dispute with Koller before the Turkey game.
