World Cup 2014 – Group G Update: Portugal’s Fabio Coentrao Out for Remainder of World Cup

17 Jun

fcUnfortunately for Portugal, but perhaps to the benefit of the United States, Fabio Coentrao has been ruled out of playing for the remainder of the tournament.

He pulled up after stretching to reach a pass during Monday’s match against Germany. He was stretchered off the pitch in the 65th minute. After tests today, the Portuguese team confirmed that my favorite Brendan Fehr look-a-like (did no one watch Roswell?) has a grade two tear of the adductor muscle.

The madridista in me is hoping to see Fabio recover quickly!

    I always thought he looked like a blonde David Duchovny aka Fox Mulder from the X-Files.
