Hannover keeper Enke set for broken hand op

Germany and Hannover goalkeeper Robert Enke was set for an operation on Friday after breaking his left hand while on international duty.

Enke flew back to Hannover on Thursday to see a specialist after suffering a scaphoid fracture while preparing for Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Russia and is now set to miss the rest of the calendar year.

"The joint will be secured with a so-called Herbert screw," explained Hannover's team doctor Wego Kregehr before Friday's surgery.

"Robert will be out in all probability for 12 weeks."

The injury could hardly have come at a worse time for the 31-year-old, who had been enjoying the best period of his career having finally received recognition for his club performances by succeeding Jens Lehmann as Germany's number one goalkeeper.

He said: "It was quite a harmless shot, but my hand was not stable and it was pushed back and I could feel something was wrong immediately.

"It is annoying, but I cannot do anything about it. Injuries are part of football and you have got to live with them."
