Dortmund's Burki withdraws from Swiss team with infected tooth

GENEVA -- Switzerland goalkeeper Roman Burki has undergone dental surgery and withdrawn from the national team ahead of two decisive World Cup qualifying games.

The Swiss football federation says Burki needs the operation for an infected tooth.

The Swiss team says treatment allowed Burki to play recent games for Borussia Dortmund, including a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League last week.

Burki was unlikely to play next week. He is behind first-choice goalkeeper Yann Sommer as Group B leader Switzerland faces games against Hungary at home and at second-placed Portugal.

Switzerland have called up Yvon Mvogo of Leipzig as a replacement, and forward Mario Gavranovic will replace injured midfielder Valon Behrami.

Gavranovic got his first call-up since tearing knee ligaments in training at the 2014 World Cup.
