Harry Redknapp was left to worry about England goalkeeper David James´ FA Cup final fitness as Blackburn celebrated the latest success of match-winning striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The 37-year-old, who tore a calf muscle last week is starting a 19-day battle to be ready for Pompey´s Wembley date on May 17 against Cardiff.

Redknapp admitted: "You never know with calf injuries how long they will take. He did it at Manchester City and we finally got him to have a scan on Thursday which showed a grade-one tear."
