Swiss Captain out for rest of Euro

Alex Frei will play no more in Euro 2008 after a team doctor said, "Frei has partially ruptured a ligament in his left knee and will be out for around six weeks." Frei, who is Switzerland's all time leading international scorer had to limp off of the field against the Czech Republic, who beat the Swiss 1-0 in the Euro 2008 opener. Frei was the victim of a Zdenekn Grygera tackle. " Of course it hurts for us to lose our captain and one of our most important players, our goal-getter," Switzerland coach Kobi Kuhn told press at Sunday's news conference. Kuhn also told the team they would just have to win without Alex. Good luck to Alex Frei and his recovery
