France defender Willy Sagnol has a fractured left arm and is likely to miss the rest of Euro 2004, the team's spokesman said Tuesday.
France has further injury worries with midfielder Patrick Vieira (thigh strain) and defender William Gallas uncertain to face Greece in Friday's
quarterfinal showdown in Lisbon.
"According to team doctor Jean-Marcel Ferret, Willy Sagnol's participation in the rest of the tournament is uncertain," spokesman Philippe Tournon
told reporters. "We are pessimistic."
Sagnol injured his arm in Monday's 3-1 win over Switzerland, while Arsenal captain Vieira and Chelsea's Gallas also picked up knocks.
