Nani Out

Nani injury hits Portugal hopes
Portugal suffered a major injury blow on Tuesday after it was announced winger Nani would play no part in the World Cup after damaging his collar bone.

The Manchester United star is thought to have suffered the injury in training on Friday and will be replaced in the squad by Benfica midfielder Ruben Amorim.

A statement on the Portuguese Football Federation's official website,, read: 'Following the injury to the left clavicle suffered by Nani, a daily assessment of the damage and the completion of medical tests, we have concluded he is unable to be competitive.'
No word on whether or not he did it celebrating a goal.

For fantasy implications, I guess this brings Simao into your reckoning.

    Could Fabio Coentrao be used on the wing? He is only 4 units in the FIFA fantasy game and he's a listed defender

  2. Which fantasy World Cup game are y'all playing?

  3. Apparently he injured himself trying an overhead kick!
