    Dropping like flies? "The player had a knock in his right leg and after a test done this morning by the medical staff and in conjunction with the coaching staff of the national team, it was determined that he is out". Sounds almost trivial. Andres Guardado (injured right leg) should read Andres Guardado (PSV Eindhoven). Imagine that--another star still playing in the Europa League and their club wants to keep them at home. Why does everyone want to avoid the Hex?
