Schalke to call on rookie keeper

Goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann is a doubt for Schalke's Europa League clash with Steaua Bucharest, leaving only a rookie 21-year-old available to coach Ralf Rangnick.

Football News: Lars Unnerstall

Fahrmann picked up an ankle injury during Sunday's 2-1 defeat to Wolfsburg and may even miss next Sunday's clash with Bayern Munich.

Lars Unnerstall, who moved to Schalke as an 18-year-old from third-division side Munster in 2008 and became a regular in their reserve team last season, is now on standby for his debut.

After being promoted to number two ahead of veteran Mathias Schober by Schalke coach Ralf Rangnick this summer, he would be the man to step in should Fahrmann not recover.

Fahrmann became Schalke's number one in July when he returned from a loan spell with Eintracht Frankfurt to fill the void left by Manuel Neuer's move to Bayern Munich.
