Munich, Germany (SportsNetwork.com) - Germany midfielder Marco Reus was officially ruled out of the World Cup on Saturday after suffering an ankle injury in a friendly against Armenia on Friday.

Reus sustained a partially torn ligament in his left ankle in a challenge with Armenia's Artur Yedigaryan in the first half of Germany's 6-1 win and he will miss six-to-seven weeks of action.

"For him and for us this is extremely regrettable," Germany manager Joachim Low said.

The 25-year-old Borussia Dortmund star was replaced on the squad by Sampdoria defender Shkodran Mustafi.

"It is not about us replacing Marco Reus one on one," Low continued. "Our quality in the position behind the strikers is very high. We have Lukas Podolski, Andre Schurrle, Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil, Julian Draxler and Toni Kroos to give us plenty of alternatives.

"That's why we decided for another option for the defensive area. Shkodran impressed us in training camp. He's fit, we have confidence in him."
