United supporters looking forward to watching their player`s perform in the 2010 World Cup have seen two of our stars dreams wrecked by injury.

First we had Rio Ferdinand withdraw and now, yesterday, the news broke that our Portuguese winger, Nani, would also miss the whole tournament.

Understandably, Ferdinand was absolutely gutted; at his age this was to be his last World Cup. But Nani is a little more laid back about his absence, possibly because he knows time is on his side for another tournament or two.

Post his injury, Nani, in talks with the media, had this to say,

“It is a misfortune that can happen to anyone.”

“Life goes on. I am now recovering as quickly as possible. I`ve confidence in my teammates and hope the national team will have a great World Cup.”


Has there ever been a World Cup when so many players linked to the Premier League have been forced to withdraw, through injury, before?
