Hargreaves blow for England

Published Add your comment

Manchester United´s Owen Hargreaves has been ruled out for England´s friendly with Austria in Vienna on Friday.

Hargreaves has only just returned to action after a long-standing tendinitis problem which he sustained while at Bayern Munich and eventually required an injection after his summer move to Old Trafford.

"Owen Hargreaves is recovering from a long-term injury," observed an FA spokesman. "Having discussed it with Manchester United, it was felt he should remain in Manchester for treatment until the weekend - with the emphasis on his fitness for the Croatia qualifier."
