Papastathopoulos was part of a poor defensive display by Dortmund that leaked two goals Wednesday in a 2-2 draw with Stuttgart.

Despite being reliable in an otherwise inconsistent team this season, Papastathopoulos, like many of the Dortmund players, struggled against a spirited Stuttgart side. He was characteristically hard-working and broke-up play effectively but also managed to get booked and not form a cohesive unit with his fellow defenders. Expect him to start in the next game with Mats Hummels still lacking match sharpness, but a prolonged run in the starting line-up is by no means guaranteed.

Papastathopoulos scored one minute into stoppage time to help Greece extend Sunday's round of 16 World Cup match against Costa Rica, although the Greeks eventually fell 5-3 in penalties.

Costa Rica went down to 10 men with 24 minutes remaining, but Papastathopoulos' goal came seconds before the final whistle. Unfortunately, the Greeks couldn't break through again in extra time, leaving Papastathopoulos a little break before his season starts up again with Borussia Dortmund.

Papastathopoulos passed a prematch fitness test ahead of Saturday's World Cup match against Colombia, and he was able to play all 90 minutes, while picking up a yellow card.

Despite being fit to play, Papastathopoulos could not do enough on his own to limit the Colombians, who put three on the board by the time it was over.

Papasathopoulos (muscle) will undergo a prematch fit test before Greece's match against Colombia on Saturday, reports Sky Sports. He missed Greece's final two tune-up matches ahead of the start of the World Cup and is uncertain to be fit for Colombia.

Papastathopoulos is a key member of the Greek defense and will certainly be missed if he is unable to play.

Papastathopoulos is expected to officially become an AC Milan once he completes a team physical, Goal.com reports.

This is an interesting move, because Papastathopoulos will need to prove he is worthy of being a starter.
