Lebanon rocked by big injury toll

While they defended stoutly and asked a couple of questions in attack, injuries plagued the brave Lebanese who might struggle to find 17 fit players ahead of next week's likely quarter-final showdown with Tonga. 

Skipper Robbie Farah came into the game with a heel injury, Michael Lichaa was forced off in the second half with an ankle complaint, while five-eighth Mitchell Moses also left the field with whiplash, although he says he will be fine.
