Vidic misses friendly against Algeria

BY foxsports • March 2, 2010

Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic will miss Serbia's World Cup warmup against Algeria.

Vidic returned for United last week after a lengthy absence due to a leg injury.

Serbia coach Radomir Antic said Vidic did not travel for Wednesday's match in Algiers, staying behind to recuperate and reduce the risk of another injury.

Serbia won its European qualifying group to secure a place at the World Cup in South Africa for the first time. Algeria has also qualified for the World Cup.

Serbia will play Ghana, Germany and Australia in its World Cup group, while Algeria faces England, the United States and Slovenia.
