MAGALIESBURG - Portugal
winger Danny might miss the team's second round match against
Spain on Tuesday after injuring his left thigh in Friday's 0-0
draw with Brazil.
The Portuguese player was chasing a ball in the Brazil
penalty box moments before the final whistle when he clashed
with keeper Julio Cesar and had to be helped off the pitch.
"Danny has a bruise on the left thigh. (He is) undergoing
intensive treatment in an attempt to recover for the next game,"
the Portuguese Football Federation said in a statement.
Danny started in Portugal's World Cup opener on June 15
against the Ivory Coast. He stayed on the substitutes' bench in
the 7-0 thumping of North Korea, but was back in the starting
lineup for the final group game on Friday.
The Federation added that midfielder Deco has recovered from
the hip injury that ruled him out of Portugal's last two Group G
matches and is set to return to full training on Saturday.
