Kanu misses match against Ajax

Arsenal striker Nwankwo Kanu will not join the team from London when they play Ajax in Amsterdam in the second round of the Champions League on Wednesday. The former Ajax player from Nigeria is injured.

Kanu has a muscle tear in his thigh. Goalkeeper David Seaman and defender Ashley Cole, who had to sit out Saturday's Premier League match with Manchester City due to injuries, will travel to Amsterdam with Arsenal on Tuesday.
