Tottenham's England striker, Les Ferdinand, is doubtful for the World Cup qualifier against Italy in Rome next month.

Ferdinand had to be substituted at half-time in Saturday's Premiership game at Leicester because of a severe stomach strain, and will have a scan today to determine the extent of the injury. "It is quite bad," Gerry Francis, the Spurs manager, said. "We could lose him for a few weeks."
