Moscow winger limped off the teamís training session on
Monday evening at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) due to
a calf problem.

three phases. After the first two phases, the top eight
teams were made to play another phase, making it 44 matches
in all, and then the Russian cup and the championsí league
added, the quick winger is indeed tired and need rest.
The league in that part of the world had to be played in
such fashion as the football authorities there want to be of
the same schedule with the rest of Europeís league which
shows there has been plenty of football for the 21 year old

serious problem for the Lone Star ahead of the epic World
Cup qualifier with the rampaging Senegal Lion Teranga. At

ready for the Senegal clash.
