Serbia's Matija Nastasic doubtful for World Cup with knee injury

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Serbia centre back Matija Nastasic faces several weeks out with a knee injury and is doubtful for the June 14-July 15 World Cup in Russia.

Nastasic, who plays for Bundesliga side Schalke, did not specify when or how he got injured. He was substituted in the latter stages of their 3-2 defeat at Hamburg SV on Saturday.

His absence would be a huge blow to Serbia's hopes of reaching the knockout stages of the 32-nation tournament in Russia, with coach Mladen Krstajic devoid of enough quality options at the back.
