Cardozo blow for Paraguay
font size    

The experienced Paraguay forward Jose Cardozo could miss the upcoming 2006 World due to injury.

The veteran of Paraguay's 1998 and 2002 World Cup campaigns sustained the calf injury in a recent friendly against Denmark, according to Paraguay officials.

Paraguay's medical team believed that he would not be able to play for three or four weeks, which would surely ruin his World Cup dream.

Cardozo tore a muscle in his left calf and suffered severe bruising before scoring Paraguay's sole goal against Denmark in the 1-1 draw ten days ago.

Anibal Ruiz's side will open their Group B campaign against England in Frankfurt on Saturday. In Cardozo's absence, the two obvious options up front for the South Americans will be Nelson Valdez and Roque Santa Cruz, whose own fitness has been in doubt because of a knee problem.
