Sweden midfielder Christian Wilhelmsson is out of Euro 2008 [Images] because of a hamstring injury.
"Christian has torn a hamstring and will be out for the rest of the finals," team doctor Anders Valentin told reporters on Wednesday before adding the injury would take at least three weeks to heal.
The Deportivo Coruna winger was hurt towards the end of Sweden's 2-0 Group D win over Greece in Salzburg on Tuesday.
Coach Lars Lagerback said no decision had been made on whether Wilhelmsson would remain with the squad or go back to Spain.
