Samir Nasri had feared he would miss the World Cup with the injury.

Nasri suffered what manager Manuel Pellegrini described as a “serious knee injury” after a strong challenge from fellow France international Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa at St James’ Park.

The 26-year-old had to be stretchered off, and there had been fears in France that his participation in the World Cup could be in doubt.

Following a scan on Monday, though, the player announced on Twitter that he is likely to return to action in March.

Nasri's father, Abdelhamid, told Le Parisien that Yanga-Mbiwa “did it nastily,” adding: “The boy was beaten first time and did it with the second challenge. And it wasn't to try and get the ball back where he hit... It's just gratuitous nastiness.”
