Swedish midfielder Christian Wilhelmsson suffered a tear of his left hamstring during Tuesday’s win over Greece and will miss the rest of Euro 2008 as a result.
With about 12 minutes to play in the match in Salzburg, a 2-0 victory for Sweden, Wilhelmsson limped off the pitch after a clash with Giourkas Seitaridis and scans revealed that he tore the muscle, forcing him out of action for the remainder of the tournament.
Sweden coach Lars LagerbÃƒÂ¤ck had held out hope that the injury wasn’t as bad as it appeared the way Wilhelmsson limped off the pitch, but the injury was indeed worst-case scenario.
It is unsure how long Wilhelmsson, who plays his club football in France for Nantes, will be out of action altogether.
