Injured Santa Cruz out of Paraguay squad, Gamarra a doubt
ASUNCION, Sept 30 (Reuters) -
Injured striker Roque Santa Cruz has been left out of the Paraguay squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers while defender and captain Carlos Gamarra is doubtful.
Santa Cruz underwent surgery after injuring a knee during the World Cup qualifier against Venezuela earlier this month and his club Bayern Munich expect him to be out of action for up to six weeks.
Gamarra, who scored the only goal against Venezuela, was included in the squad despite injuring a knee ligament in the same game.
Paraguay, third in the 10-nation South American World Cup qualifying group with 14 points from eight games, are away to Colombia in Barranquilla on October 9 and face Peru in Asuncion four days later.
Coach Anibal Ruiz said it was important not to let Colombia settle.
"Colombia are a team which can't be given space," he said. "They don't like to be pressured. If you let them have possession of the ball and don't hassle them, you can have problems."
Uruguayan Ruiz will have to watch the game from the stands after being sent off during the Venezuela match for protesting to the referee.
