Sometime on Friday, I was thinking of France's chances at the World Cup. And just then, news broke that Franck Ribery was ruled out with a back injury. Prior to the start of every World Cup, we see a host of talented players miss the plane. It's no different this time. Radamel Falcao and Theo Walcott are already out. Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez are fighting hard to be fit in time. I'm pretty sure there exists an 'Injured XI' out there. Having played football for my school, I know what it's like to be out there on the pitch and watch the game from the sidelines. No one wants to have the 'I should be there, but am not' feeling.
