Ribery injured for Ireland play-off

Midfielder Franck Ribery looks set to miss France's World Cup play-off against Republic of Ireland with a knee injury.

The Bayern Munich player is likely to be sidelined for a month, which would rule him out France's two-legged tie with the Irish in mid-November, as well as five games for his club, including a crucial Champions League fixture at home to Bordeaux.

Professor Jean-Henri Jaeger in Strasbourg confirmed Ribery has tendinitis of the patellar tendon in his left knee and needs to rest for four weeks, according to L'Equipe.

The destructive winger's absence would be a blow for Les Bleus ahead of the games on November 14 and 18, which will determine which team will travel to South Africa next year.
