Franck Ribéry could miss the World Cup

Ribéry has scored 16 goals for the national team - Action Images

The France winger is suffering from a recurring back problem which could rule him out of the tournament in Brazil.


The Bayern Munich midfielder's international teammate, Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud, told L'Equipe: "He [Ribéry] has started to become angry. He is worried and concerned about his situation.

"We must help him hold on and be patient. When I'm injured for three days, I lose it. It is on the eve of the World Cup."

The injury caused Ribéry to miss his country’s 1-1 draw with Paraguay on Sunday.
