2014 World Cup: Injury scare as Majeed Waris suffers calf problem in training

Published on: 16 April 2014
Abdul Majeed Waris picked up a calf injury in training on Saturday.

Valenciennes talisman Abdul Majeed Waris is a doubt for Sunday’s crucial Ligue 1 match against Nantes after picking up a calf injury in training on Tuesday.

The in-form striker bruised his calf during practice but the injury does not seem to be serious.

Waris has been in the treatment room lately and had to overcome a shoulder injury to play in the 1-0 defeat to Lille.

"Following a blow this morning (Tuesday) in training. He has a bruised calf," Valenciennes coach Ariel Jacobs said.

Waris will be closing monitored by the medical team as Valenciennes look for an escape route to remain in the top-flight.

The 22-year-old Ghana international has been crucial to their survival campaign and will be worked on to stay fit for the tie.

Waris has banged in nine goals in 12 Ligue 1 matches since joining from Russian side Spartak Moscow in January on loan.

Valenciennes lie second-bottom on the table and are in need of the points to aid their campaign.

    Somebody should tell Warris to slow down. "Yerekamfo wodua foro no na yere kamfo wo akyaka buo" This is a WC year, and I hope he does not want to miss it.
