Broken hand rules German keeper Enke out

DUSSELDORF, October 9 (World Cup Qualifying) - After Robert Enke suffered a scaphoid fracture in training on Wednesday the way has been paved for either Rene Adler or Tim Wiese to make their Germany debut this weekend, and national team manager Oliver Bierhoff has faith in either of them to fill the void well.

Enke broke his hand in training on Wednesday while punching a shot from Philipp Lahm clear and tests on Thursday morning confirmed he will miss the upcoming two World Cup qualifiers against Russia and Wales.

Germany coach Joachim Low has yet to decide who between Adler and Wiese will take the number one jersey against Russia on Saturday and this, according to Bierhoff, should spur them both on to perform in training over the next few days.

''I am very sorry for Enke, who has had a great career to get to where he is now and this has been a great moment for him after lots of patience to become the number one, but Germany has never had a problem with goalkeepers,'' said Bierhoff.

''We have no qualms about playing with either Rene Adler or Tim Wiese.

''We have a battle for every position on the field and the important thing is that the players now keep their concentration and train intensively until Saturday and we will find out on Friday who will definitely play.''

Adler and Wiese have yet to pull on a Germany shirt and facing the Russians will be a baptism of fire for the eventual choice, but Bierhoff feels both are capable of dealing with the expectations on their debut.

''I am convinced that every player can play and cope with pressure,'' added Bierhoff.

''They are used to it at their clubs and it will help that we have home advantage, in a German stadium that they both know and an intact team with everybody helping each other.

''Rene has already shown that he can run the defence at Leverkusen.

''I have no doubt that he has the ability and, for his young age, he has a great presence on the field and I would have no problems fielding him in a home game in Dortmund.''

Midfielder Torsten Frings said that the news of Enke's injury had ''shocked'' the team when they were informed at midday on Thursday.

''I am sorry for Robert personally, but we have got to put it behind us and do our best,'' said the Werder Bremen midfielder, who has had his fair share of injuries in the past.

''I am delighted to be back again.

''I have had a bit of bad luck since the European Championships with a muscular problem and a broken nose.

''But I feel very fit now and, apart from a few niggles here and there, I am feeling good.''
