'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Arsenal Star In World Cup Agony

For Phileppe Senderos, the game between Switzerland and South Korea was bitter sweet as his goal sent his home nation through to the next round, but a later clash left him injured and out of the tournament.

Switzerland's team doctor Rudolf Roeder told how Big Phil will be out for a minimum of two weeks and there is a possibility of an operation.

'He will be out for a minimum of two weeks,' Roeder said.

'There is a 50 percent chance he will require an operation but the most important thing is rest for now.'

Senderos has been Switzerland's rock at the heart of their defence and this will come as a massive blow to the team, but exclusion of Senderos means another Arsenal player will be set to make his mark on the biggest stage in football.

Johan Djourou will fill in at centre back, and is more than capable of doing a job.

THat last remark is meant to get us all riled up, but I don't think it merits comment other than to say anyone who relishes in footballers injuries (regardless of who they play for) is not a true fan of the game. I can't stand Alan Smith, as a player I have always thought of him a snot nosed little 'bover boy', but I felt genuinely sorry for him when he got that injury against Liverpool. That is his livlihood, his career, his passion and those who take pleasure in watching players being cruelly deprived of a chance to ply their trade are small minded little saidists who have no business even glancing at a football match.
