TONY POPOVIC suffered an injury blow in Australia's World Cup clash with Brazil.

The Eagles defender, 32, hobbled off with a calf injury five minutes before half-time with the score at 0-0.

He has been plagued with calf and back problems forcing him to miss most of Palace's season.

Brazil went on to win the match 2-0 after goals from Adriano (49 mins) and substitute Fred (90th min).

Australia put up a brave fight against the world champions and need only a draw in their final game against Croatia to seal a place in the last 16.
