Mainz confirm injuries will keep Burkardt and Onisiwo from international duty
Shortly after Germany U21 international Jonathan Burkardt cancelled his trip to Antonio di Salvo’s DFB Juniors, FSV Mainz 05 confirmed that the reasoning was a knee joint distortion suffered over the weekend.

Burkardt’s fellow Mainz striker Karim Onisiwo will also forgo his current international tour-of-duty with a foot contusion. 

As for Burkardt, who has struggled with multiple injury woes this season, it might take significantly more time before the 22-year-old can return to his club’s training pitch. If the “distortion” the club reports on turns out to be a “dislocation”, recovery time could stretch out for 4-6 weeks. Burkardt has only been able to make 11 league appearances for the Nullfünfter this season. He finally netted his first goal of the campaign against Frankfurt on Sunday.
