Sports World Cup: Ribery angry with injury worries

France and Bayern Munich forward Franck Ribery has expressed displeasure over his chances of playing at the 2014 world cup.

Team mate, Oliver Giroud said that the Bayern Munich forward is "angry" and "worried" and hopes to recover soonest to make it to Brazil.

Giroud played for 90 minutes in France's 1-1 draw with Paraguay in Nice, in which both sides traded goals in the final eight minutes, but the Bayern Munich man was not involved as he continues to battle a back injury.

"He has started to become angry," Giroud is quoted as saying by L'Equipe. "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."

France coach Didier Deschamps was tight-lipped so as to not fuel speculation on Ribery's availability for Brazil, conceding there was "nothing new" to add following the Paraguay match.

Loic Remy, who was deployed on the left in Ribery's absence, said France's missed opportunities early in the fixture at the Allianz Riviera cost them a result.

"We started very well, we had a lot of opportunities we did not finish and in the end we were punished after opening the scoring," Remy said.

"This kind of meeting should enable us to rectify before the World Cup. We must be vigilant and not concede a goal in that way."
