MOGI DAS CRUZES, Brazil (AFP) - Belgium right-back Anthony Vanden Borre will miss the rest of the World Cup after breaking his ankle, coach Marc Wilmots said on Friday.

Vanden Borre suffered a fracture to his fibula during Thursday's 1-0 win over South Korea.

"Anthony wont play again at this World Cup but will stay with our team," said Wilmots on his Twitter account.

Vanden Borre underwent test at a hospital in Sao Paulo following the game as his ankle was badly swollen.
