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.No word on whether or not he did it celebrating a goal.
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, www.fpt.pt, 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.'
For fantasy implications, I guess this brings Simao into your reckoning.
