England Adds Rookies as World Cup Players Get Virus: Roundup

Sept. 11 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers with clickable links to the Web.

England Virus

England called up rookie national team players Raheem Sterling and Adam Lallana after a virus hit the squad before today’s World Cup qualifier against Ukraine, the Independent reported.

Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge were both affected by illness, the newspaper said. Sterling, 17, plays for Liverpool and Lallana, 24, for Southampton.

Cech Surgery

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech can’t stretch one of his arms without discomfort, and will require elbow surgery after this season, the Daily Mail reported.

The Blues asked the Czech Republic to leave the 30-year-old out of exhibition games, the Mail added.

Silva Pay Rise

David Silva is on the verge of signing a new contract with Manchester City worth more than 200,000 pounds ($320,460) per week, the Daily Mirror reported.

City expects the deal will end Real Madrid’s pursuit of the 26-year-old Spain midfielder, the Mirror said.

Diaby Out

Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby will miss France’s World Cup qualifier against Belarus today because of a muscle injury, the Daily Mail reported.

Diaby has been one of the stars of the London club’s “solid” start to the season, the Mail said. The Gunners haven’t allowed a goal in three games.
