Injury rules Forssell out of Finland qualifier

August 21, 2007

HELSINKI, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Striker Mikael Forssell will miss Finland's Euro 2008 qualifier against Kazakhstan in Tampere on Wednesday because of a calf injury, a Finnish Football Association spokesman told Reuters on the eve of the match.

Forssell, who plays for Birmingham City, hurt his leg in an English Premier League match against West Ham last Saturday.

Coach Roy Hodgson has opted not to add any players to his squad, as all the remaining members were fit to play, spokesman Sami Terava added.
