Denmark keeper Sorensen could make World Cup

Copenhagen: Injured Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen could be fit for Denmark`s World Cup campaign in June despite being ruled out for the rest of the Premier League season, the club said on Monday.

The Danish number one dislocated his right elbow in Sunday`s 7-0 drubbing by league leaders Chelsea after a collision with Salomon Kalou but did not need surgery.

"If he had needed an operation, he`d have struggled to make the World Cup, but there is some encouraging news in that it was put back without the need for that," Stoke manager Tony Pulis told the club website.

Stoke, 13th in the table, are likely turn to Asmir Begovic to deputise for their final three league games against Everton, Fulham and Manchester United.
