Hammers fear as Aguerd returns

Nayef Aguerd has been included in the team which takes on France in the World Cup semi final this evening,

Aguerd injured in the game against Spain – when suffering a minor thigh problem – has hopefully not been rushed back into action earlier than necessary for such an injury.

We have learned that such a problem can take between one and three weeks to heal and it is just over a week since he suffered the problem.

Aguerd has been in brilliant form during the tournament and his return will be a boost for the Moroccans – 11/2 underdogs to beat the French.

The winners of tonight’s game will meet Argentina in the final but Hammers fans will be watching more crucially for any sign of a problem for Aguerd during tonight’s action.

A Hammers source told us minutes before the mnatch: “This is a big worry – we are in no position to do anything but hope for the best.”
