Rat injury scare

Filed: Tuesday, 19th November 2013
By: Staff Writer

West Ham left back Razvan Rat could add to Sam Allardyce's injury problems after he was withdrawn less than half an hour into tonight's World Cup play-off tie between Romania and Greece in Bucharest.

Allardyce, who is already missing key first team players such as Andy Carroll and Winston Reid could now be facing the loss of the experienced full back who was making his 93rd appearance for his country.

Details of the specific nature of the injury are yet to emerge, although Rat was clearly in some discomfort when leaving the field. Greece lead the match 1-0 at half time courtesy of a 25th minute Konstantinos Mitroglou goal.

* Ravel Morrison was an unused substitute as England Under 21s secured a record 9-0 win against San Marino at the Greenhous Meadow Stadium, Shrewsbury.
