Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant sidelined for the next few weeks


sbo333 Stoke back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant will spend a few weeks on the sidelines after suffering a broken wrist.

The 35-year-old complained of soreness after participating in the warm-up prior to last Sunday's 1-1 draw at Leicester and examinations later revealed a fracture.

Dane Jakob Haugaard is now likely to be Jack Butland's deputy for this weekend's crucial trip to relegation rivals Southampton.

Stoke manager Paul Lambert said: "Lee has got a little break in his wrist. He felt it in the warm-up against Leicester on Saturday. It has just shown up, he will be out for a few weeks." sbo333

Butland is in contention for the England goalkeeper's jersey ahead of the World Cup in Russia this summer, but he was at fault for Leicester's equaliser last week, when he diverted a Marc Albrighton cross into his own net.

Lambert backed his No 1 immediately after the game and says the 24-year-old's response in training since has been very positive.

"He's been brilliant, which I'd expect," said the manager. "He reacted the right way after the mistake with two brilliant saves. He's a brilliant goalkeeper and he's going to be even better as he gets older.

"I don't have any fear about Jack at all. The type of lad he is, he is confident to handle situations like that."

Ivan Rakitic says Croatia will have '4.5m players on pitch' in World Cup final


sb0bet Ivan Rakitic says Croatia will have "4.5m players on the pitch" when they face France in Sunday's World Cup final.Croatia defeated England 2-1 after extra-time in Wednesday night's semi-final to book their place in the final at Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium.

Barcelona midfielder Rakitic believes the pride of representing the smallest country to make the World Cup final in 68 years, with a population of just over four million, will motivate Croatia to create footballing history."This is a historic game for not just us, for everybody who is a Croat. There are 4.5m players on the pitch," said Rakitic.

sb0bet "We will carry one another, we will have the energy, we know this is the biggest game of our lives."We want to leave the pitch with our heads held high. We just need a little bit of luck to get the result."Despite Croatia having played 120 minutes in their semi-final, a day later than France progressed against Belgium in St Petersburg in more straightforward fashion, Rakitic insisted fatigue will not be an issue in the showpiece final.

"There will be excess power and energy, no worries about that," Rakitic added.The 30-year-old will make his 71st appearance of the season against France in Moscow - more than any player at the World Cup - after winning a La Liga and Copa del Rey double with Barcelona. sb0bet
