Rovers midfielder Grella out injured for Socceroos

EINDHOVEN, September 7 (World Cup Qualifying) - Blackburn midfielder Vince Grella has been ruled out of Australia's World Cup qualifier against Uzbekistan on Wednesday due to injury.

The 28-year-old has been struggling with a calf problem and was seen on crutches ahead of Saturday's friendly with Holland in Eindhoven.

Coach Pim Verbeek insisted Grella's prognosis was "good", but added it was in the best interests of both his club Blackburn and Australia - who open the final round of World Cup qualifiers in the Uzbekistan capital - if did not play.

Grella will return to Ewood Park for further treatment.
