Luis Fabiano's Injury May Keep Him out of the 2010 Qualifiers

The Brazilian playing abroad, Luis Fabiano, suffered an injury in his right leg on Tuesday and is doubtful to play in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers for the South American bracket.


Due to the partially torn muscle, the player is expected to miss at least two weeks of games. Upon hearing the news, the head coach of the Brazilian national team, Dunga, is looking to replace Luis Fabiano for the next two games of the qualifiers.


The Brazilian national team will travel to San Cristobal to play the Venezuelan national team on the 12th of October. Three days later, on the 15th of October, the team will host Colombia in the Maracana stadium in Rio de Janeiro. The games will be the 9th and 10th round of the qualifiers, respectively.


"I am unsure of the severity of the injury. I cannot make any declarations as of yet in respect to him being cut from the team, or not. Luis was released from his team, Sevilla, and will return to Brazil in order to undergo his physical therapy. Once he arrives, I will carefully analyze him and then tell you my opinion," said the team doctor, Jose Luiz Runco.


Luis Fabiano is one of three other players to score four goals in the South American qualifiers. Should he miss the next two rounds of play, his presence up front will surely be missed.
