Han-Wilhelm Muller-Wolfahrt, the team doctor for Germany has given German and Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger a clean bill of health after a fitness test to feature in Germany’s first game in EURO 2012 tournament.

The Team Doctor recommended that the German can now be listed among the first team squad billed to face Portugal which also is the first game of the tournament for Germany.

The influential Bayern Munich midfielder recently suffered a succession of nagging injuries, and there were initial doubts over whether he would be able to participate in first game of his country.

The 27-year-old expressed so much joy when the team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt confirmed that he will be at Joachim Low’s disposal for the clash with Portugal.

According to the team doctor “Bastian has no problems, no more pain, he will be available but cannot begin training until Monday because has a bit to do to get fully fit of course, but I’m assuming that he will be ready to face Portugal.”

The game between Germany and Portugal will be kicking off on June 9th in Lviv.
