MONTREAL (AP) - Germany midfielder Dzsenifer Marozsan has a hyperextended left ankle and the team is not certain if she will play in Tuesday’s World Cup semifinal against the United States.

Marozsan was injured in Friday’s quarterfinal against France. She entered the game as a substitute at halftime and converted the fourth penalty shot in the shootout that Germany won 5-4 to settle a 1-1 tie.

After the shootout, Germany coach Silvia Neid said Marozsan’s ankle was swollen and she didn’t know how she walked to the spot to take the kick.

The United States beat China 1-0 in their quarterfinal for the chance to meet Germany at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium.
