Injury concerns hamper Angola bid

LUANDA - Angola have injury concerns over key players for their final African Nations Cup Group A match against Algeria on Monday.

Angola can win the group and stay in Luanda for a quarter-final next weekend if they beat Algeria but they might have to do without tournament top scorer Flavio.

The striker, who has three goals, was a major doubt with a hamstring injury, while midfielder Djalma and defender Zuela were receiving treatment for muscle complaints, team officials told reporters on Sunday.

However, winger Gilberto, who had to depart the field in the first half of the 2-0 win over Malawi, has returned to light training after an elbow injury.
