Germany's captain booked for scan today

5:59 am on 17 May 2010

Germany's football captain Michael Ballack is booked in tonight for a scan which will reveal his World Cup fate.

The 33 year old Chlesea midfielder, who limped out of yesterday's FA Cup final against Portsmouth with an ankle injury, was supposed to have had his ankle scanned last night, but heavy swelling delayed the examination for 24 hours.

An x-ray at Wembley stadium showed no broken bones.
