Grip - Rooney-less England need plan B

England number two Tord Grip admits he is unsure how England will cope without Wayne Rooney at the World Cup with Sven-Goran Eriksson struggling to devise a Plan B.

The 20-year-old Manchester United striker looks likely to miss most of the tournament in Germany after breaking a metatarsal in his foot against Chelsea at the weekend.

Rooney's injury coupled with lingering doubts over strike partner Michael Owen's fitness are threatening to seriously undermine England's chances this summer and Eriksson's assistant Grip told The Sun: 'It doesn't look hopeful as far as Wayne is concerned.

'We're working on Plan B now - but just how that plan looks, I really don't know.

'Of course it's serious when our top two forwards are both injured.

'The situation with Owen is not so bad and we are much more optimistic he will play.

'With Wayne, we will have to wait and see - but it doesn't look good at the moment.

'We will know more when our doctor, Leif Sward, meets United doctor Michael Stone for talks on Thursday.'
