MOSCOW: Both Senegal and Denmark have suffered injury blows at the World Cup finals in Russia.
Senegal defender Saliou Ciss has been ruled out of the tournament and will be replaced by Adama Mbengue.
The left back, who plays his club football at Valenciennes in France’s Ligue 2, suffered an ankle injury in last month’s friendly against Luxembourg. His departure comes two days after his 29th birthday.
The Danish federation said: “William Kvist has suffered a rib injury and is travelling home to Denmark. Everyone around the team wishes him a good recovery.”
Victory put Denmark in second place in Group C on three points with France top on goals scored. The Danes take on Australia in their next match on Thursday.
