BRASILIA -Solomon Islands Kurukuru face an anxious wait as three of their star players battle with injury just five days out from the start of the FIFA Futsal World Cup - Brazil 2008. Elliot Ragomo, Jenan Kagu and Junior Kogua received treatment for ankle injuries at Goias Sports Club after injuring themselves in warm-up matches and training. 
T
he loss of a player like Elliot Ragomo would be a hammer-blow for the Solomon Islands who face Cuba in Match 2 of the tournament on 30 September in Brasilia.  Goias Sports Club physiotherapist has put Ragomo, Kagu and Kogua through a rigourous pool programme to ensure the three players will be available for selection for the opening match.
"We are taking a cautious approach to the three players at the moment, we do not want to take any unnecessary risks. We've taken the three players out of the training environment and will work them through a controlled rehabilitation programme," a team spokesman said in a brief statement today.
Solomon Islands Kurukuru squad is still training twice a day and will leave Goiania tomorrow for Brasilia where the team will be based.
Solomon Islands will face Cuba, Brazil, Japan and Russia in Group A of the FIFA Futsal World Cup - Brazil 2008.
