England suffer Terry injury blowEngland captain John Terry seems certain to miss Wednesday's Euro 2008 qualifier against Russia in Moscow after his knee locked up in training.

Terry had been given the all-clear just hours earlier but suffered a recurrence of the injury that kept him out of Saturday's win over Estonia. Sol Campbell is likely to deputise for Terry once more.

Head coach Steve McClaren said: "John Terry is almost certainly ruled out - he could not complete the session."

Owen to Miss Key England Matches

Owen to miss key England matchesMichael Owen has been ruled out of England's two Euro 2008 qualifiers in October with a torn groin muscle.

The 27-year-old striker will see a specialist on Thursday to determine whether he also needs an operation. It had been thought that Owen had a hernia but it now appears he has a stomach weakness that may need surgery.

"He will be back for the first game after the England internationals at the very, very earliest," said Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce.

Ref Styles Sparks Liverpool Fury

Ref Styles sparks Liverpool furyLiverpool boss Rafael Benitez was left incensed and skipper Steven Gerrard said Rob Styles had "cracked" after he awarded Chelsea Club a penalty on Sunday.

Styles penalised Steve Finnan for a foul on Florent Malouda, although replays showed there was no contact. "That decision is impossible to explain, it was the invisible penalty" said Benitez after the 1-1 draw.

Styles also appeared to give Chelsea Club defender Michael Essien two yellow cards but did not send him off.

Milan Keen on Shevchenko Signing

ShevchenkoAC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi is confident of bringing Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko back to the San Siro. Milan's vice-president Adriano Galliani claimed on 5 June that Chelsea were unwilling to let Shevchenko, 31, leave after signing him for £30m in 2006.

But Berlusconi believes a deal is still possible, telling Gazetta dello Sport: "Sheva has a great desire to return. "The last time I spoke to Galliani, a couple of days ago, the probability of him coming back to Milan was 80%." Shevchenko has been continuously linked with a return to the San Siro after a difficult first season at Stamford Bridge.

Milan, the European champions, are keen to sign a new striker and have reportedly targeted Arsenal striker Thierry Henry and Barcelona's Samuel Eto'o. But Berslusconi appears to have his heart set on Shevchenko, saying: "I like [Samuel] Eto'o, he is young, but I am a romantic and I prefer Shevchenko.

"There are no obstacles linked to his salary because he would be winning a similar fee as that of our top players.

"We will have to negotiate his transfer with Chelsea, each club looks at their own interests. I really believe Shevchenko would be an ideal player to complete our attacking line.

"I consider Sheva as my son. I have experienced important moments with his family, such as his father's heart operation and the birth of his son, who I'm a godfather to.

"Andriy is still young, he's got so many years of his career ahead of him."
