England striker Emile Heskey is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines after scans showed he has a fractured metatarsal.

The 29-year-old Wigan frontman limped off just nine minutes into Saturday´s 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw with Fulham at the JJB Stadium with a suspected break.

Tests carried out since have revealed a crack fracture which could keep him out for six weeks, meaning he will not only miss several games for his club, but also England´s vital Euro 2008 qualifiers against Estonia and Russia.
