Toe injury threatens Robin van Persie`s participation

Van Persie, on the verge of matching the record tally of goals for the Dutch national team, was hurt in last week`s Champions League tie against Shakhtar Donetsk.
"I got an enormous stamp on my toe and I really thought it had been broken, but luckily a scan showed it was not," Van Persie told a media conference.
"I played on Sunday (for Manchester United against Sunderland) but the injury has not got better."
He would continue training and a final decision on his playing would be made closer to kick off.
If he did not play on Friday he would stay with the squad in a bid to be fit for Tuesday`s final European Group D qualifier in Turkey.
The Dutch have already secured a berth at next year`s World Cup finals in Brazil. AFP -------------------------- ZEENEWS.com
