Reina to undergo tests on injury

By Football News



Liverpool face an anxious wait over Pepe Reina's fitness after the goalkeeper picked up a muscle injury during Spain's clash against France.

Reina was unable to take his usual place on the bench for the second half of the 1-1 draw in UEFA World Cup qualifying and will now undergo a physical examination upon returning to Merseyside.

Manchester City's David Silva was substituted in the game after picking up a hamstring injury, while Alvaro Arbeloa was also withdrawn with a similar knock.

Reina told reporters: "The injury is not serious. I got injured at half-time. Today (Wednesday) I will do more tests at Liverpool."

The Spaniard has only missed four English Premier League games for Liverpool since May 2007, with a run out of the team forced upon him towards the end of last season due to suspension.
