MAINZ, Germany -- Germany thrashed Armenia 6-1 in the sides last friendly match before the World Cup but influential midfielder Marco Reus participation in the tournament was left hanging in the balance on Friday. Trenton Cannon Jersey
. Reus was helped off the pitch before the break after twisting his left ankle while challenging Artur Yedigaryan for the ball. Reus immediately dropped to the grass and appeared in considerable pain. Team doctor Hans-Wilhelm Mueller-Wohlfahrt shook his head as he assisted the Borussia Dortmund player off the pitch. Reus was taken to the hospital to determine the full extent of the injury. "Hes getting checked out now and we have to wait for the diagnosis," Germany coach Joachim Loew said. "I saw it at halftime and you could see it was swollen. I hope its nothing to do with the ligaments. We hope, of course, that hes not out (of the World Cup)." Lukas Podolski, who came on for Reus, put on a man-of-the-match performance by setting up three goals and scoring another. "When he plays like this hes hard to stop," Loew said. Podolski whipped in a cross for Andre Schuerrle to beat Armenia keeper Roman Berezovsky at the near post in the 52nd. Henrikh Mkhitaryan equalized with a penalty in the 69th, when he sent Dortmund teammate Roman Weidenfeller the wrong way. Another Dortmund player, Kevin Grosskreutz, conceded the spot kick a minute after coming on as a substitute. Podolski responded with a goal of his own in the 69th after a good assist from Arsenal teammate Mesut Ozil and Benedikt Hoewedes made it 3-1 at the second attempt a minute after that. Podolski then crossed for Miroslav Klose to head his record 69th international goal in the 77th. The veteran striker had shared Germanys goal-scoring record with Gerd Mueller. Podolski set up Mario Goetze for the fifth goal in the 82nd, before Klose laid the ball back for Goetze to claim his second in the 89th. The game, however, was overshadowed by Reus injury. There was better news from Loews perspective on Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger, who returned after recovering from an ankle and knee injury respectively. Lahm played the first half in midfield alongside Sami Khedira, who made way with half an hour remaining for Schweinsteiger. Ozil, who hit the post, answered some of his recent critics with an encouraging performance. "We were fresher after the days off but now we need training in Brazil to get used to the climate," Loew said. The German squad leaves for Brazil on Saturday. Joe Namath Jets Jersey

. The 31-year-old Spain midfielder hasnt played since Madrid lost in the Copa del Rey final to Atletico Madrid in May due to back and foot injuries.SEATTLE - Carson Palmer felt confident in where he needed to go with the throw. He also knew he was throwing to a wide receiver who hadnt made a reception in the previous 57 minutes. A perfectly placed throw by Palmer and a juggling catch by Michael Floyd kept the Arizona Cardinals in the playoff hunt for another week with a surprising 17-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Palmer overcame four interceptions to find Floyd on a 31-yard touchdown with 2:13 left, and Arizona won for the seventh time in eight games and snapped the Seahawks 14-game home win streak. "Its tough not to get the ball thrown your way until the last play of the game essentially," Palmer said. The Cardinals were nasty on defence, frustrating Russell Wilson into the first home loss of his professional career and gave Palmer a chance to come through late. Palmer did and now Week 17 has meaning for Arizona. "An ugly win is a win regardless of how it comes out," Palmer said. "There was a handful of times where the ball really bounced their way today and we were resilient, kept fighting, kept believing and came out and got a win." Palmer was mistake prone early, throwing three of his four interceptions in the first half. He was twice intercepted in the end zone, including Richard Shermans second pick of the game early in the fourth quarter. His winning drive made up for the earlier errors. Palmer led Arizona 75 yards in 10 plays. Floyd had been targeted four times previous without a reception, but beat Byron Maxwell down the sideline and Palmers throw was on the mark. The 58-0 beating the Seahawks put on Arizona last season in Seattle is history. The memory now is Arizona handing Seattle its first home loss since Dec. 24, 2011, against San Francisco. "Any time you come on the road and the team beats you 58-0 and you have to come back to their place, it lingers to the back of your head," Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett said. "If you got any pride in any game of football, when a team beats you by 58, you know you think about it and its stuck on you." Palmer finished 13 of 25 for 178 yards. Floyds TD reception was his only catch and Larry Fitzgerald was held to three catches for 18 yards. Arizona didnt need to be explosive offensively because of its defence. Wilson was 11 off 27 for 108 yards, taking his first home loss since he was at North Carolina State. Sam Darnold Jersey
. . Seattle went three-and-out seven times. They had only 22:36 of possession. Wilson rarely had time to throw and when he did, he missed open receivers. His final pass was underthrown, deflecting off Doug Baldwin and into the arms of Karlos Dansby with 1:56 left. The final pass was another moment of debate for the Seahawks, who earlier thought they had recovered a fumble only to have replay side with Arizona. The pass appeared to hit the ground before deflecting off Baldwin and to Dansby. It was ruled an interception on the field and referee Scott Green told a pool reporter there was not indisputable evidence to overturn that call. Baldwin was emphatic the ball hit the turf. "I would have loved to get that call," Baldwin said. "I believe the ball hit the ground. But thats not why we didnt win the game." Until the winning scoring drive, Palmers day was defined by poor decisions and unlucky bounces. He was intercepted in the end zone by Kam Chancellor on Arizonas opening drive when his pass deflected off Rob Hausler. He was picked off by Malcolm Smith in Seattle territory in the second quarter on a tipped pass, and twice threw interceptions to Sherman, the second a poor decision. But Palmer was fantastic on Arizonas decisive drive after Seattle took a 10-9 lead on Wilsons 11-yard TD pass to Zach Miller. Palmer started with a third-down completion as he was about to get sandwiched by Clinton McDonald, flipping a pass to Jake Ballard for 17 yards. The drive was kept going when Smith was flagged for defensive holding on a third-down incompletion. On third-and-6, Palmer dropped a perfect throw beyond Maxwell and into Floyds hands. He juggled it at first, but controlled the ball as he hit the turf. Rashard Mendenhall scored easily on the 2-point conversion with 2:13 left. "Whether we make the playoffs or not, we beat one of the best," Arizona coach Bruce Arians said. Notes: Arizona won in Seattle for the first time since 2009. ... According to STATS, Inc., it was the third regular season game Palmer threw four INTs and first that he won. ... Seattle K Steven Hauschka missed a 24-yard FG in the second quarter off the left upright. It snapped a streak of 22 straight makes.
