GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany (AP) - Germany’s attacking midfielder Julian Draxler could be out of action until after the winter break following an injury in Schalke’s Bundesliga victory over Augsburg.

Draxler limped off the field in the opening minutes of Friday’s 1-0 win.

Schalke general manager Horst Heldt said on the club’s website that Draxler appears to have “a serious muscle injury” and he doesn’t expect Draxler to play again in the season’s first half.

Draxler was on Germany’s World Cup-winning squad.
