Danish midfielder William Kvist out of World Cup with rib injury

MOSCOW Russia (Xinhua) -- Denmark will be without experienced midfielder William Kvist for the rest of the World Cup, the Danish Football Association confirmed on Sunday.

The 33-year-old had to be carried off the pitch in the in the first half of Denmark’s 1-0 win against Peru on Saturday after being injured in a challenge with Peru’s Jefferson Farfan and was replaced by Lasse Schone.

"William Kvist has suffered a rib injury and is travelling home to Denmark. Everyone around the team wishes him a good recovery," explained the Danish FA on their ‘Twitter’ account.

A hard-working holding midfielder, Kvist may not have been the most technical player in the Denmark side, but his 84 caps show his enormous importance to the team and it will be interesting to see who replaces him against Australia in Denmark’s next group game, where a win for the Danes would almost certainly book their place in the last 16 of the tournament.

FIFA says France’s winning goal against Australia was Aziz Behich own goal

MOSCOW Russia (Xinhua) -- FIFA have ruled that France’s second goal against Australia in the World Cup Group C opener was an own goal from Aziz Behich, its official website showed on Sunday.

In the 81st minute of the match on Saturday, a shot from France midfielder Paul Pogba looped off the Australian defender before hitting the underside of the crossbar and bouncing just over the goal line. The goal helped France secure a 2-1 win over Australia.

However, the official FIFA website showed that the goal had subsequently been attributed to an own goal from Behich, who got the final touch.

After the match on Saturday, Manchester United midfielder Pogba told the press that the Australian had touched the ball, but added that the three points was all that mattered.

France will face Peru in their next game on June 21, while Australia meet Denmark on the same day.
