Coach Bora Milutinovic is suffering from a severe bout of flu and could miss China’s first ever World Cup fixture against Costa Rica.

“I’m now receiving infusions, but it is just not clearing up,” said Milutinovic, who is worried he could develop pneumonia.

If the situation does not improve he will be unable to conduct his team’s twice-daily training sessions.
