Cani out for Zurich match after ankle injury.

It's only a sprain, but our talismanic midfielder will miss the trip to Switzerland, and possibly to Barcelona for the Espanyol match as well.

Word from EPM this morning (this morning my time, anyhow) is that Cani won't be traveling to Switzerland for the Zurich match Thursday.

He injured his left ankle in the warmup before the Valencia match, and while it is not a severe sprain, it's pretty sore and swollen.  It's possible he would be available for the Espanyol match on Sunday, but with another international break following (!) I expect he'll be held out unless he's made a 100% recovery.

The first team is holding a last practice this afternoon Spanish time; expect the list of those in the traveling party to be released after that.
