Litmanen cancels international friendly

Due to a slight hamstring injury Jari Litmanen will not travel to Houston for a friendly match with Finland against Honduras, on 16 November.

Litmanen was repleced after a hour in the league match against ADO Den Haag. He was already bothered by his hamstring and on training Monday morning, he stayed out of the group.

Petri Pasanen (Finland) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden) had earlier also cancelled with their national teams to be able to recover from the heavy strains in the past few weeks. They want to be fit for the upcoming string of important matches (Heerenveen, AC Milan, Feyenoord) with Ajax.
