Swiss' Senderos to miss next two games

Switzerland's team doctor says defender Philippe Senderos will miss the squad's two remaining group matches because of an ankle injury.

Switzerland's team doctor says defender Philippe Senderos will miss the squad's two remaining group matches because of an ankle injury.

Senderos sprained his right ankle in Wednesday's 1-0 upset win against Spain.

Team doctor Cuno Wetzel said X-rays and magnetic scans Thursday showed no fractures but a "painful distortion of his ankle."

"He will be out for the next two games," Wetzel said at the team camp in Vanderbijlpark.

Senderos was substituted after 36 minutes in Switzerland's 1-0 win against European champion Spain. Midfielder Gelson Fernandes scored the winner.

Senderos is joining Fulham from Arsenal on a three-year contract.

The 25-year-old center back moved to Arsenal from Swiss side Servette in 2003, but struggled to win a regular starting place and joined Everton on loan for the second half of last season. He will join Fulham after his Arsenal contract expires at the end of this month.
