Sweden's Linderoth to miss Portugal clash

STOCKHOLM, Oct 1 (Reuters) - Galatasaray midfielder Tobias Linderoth, plagued by injuries for nearly a year, will miss Sweden's World Cup qualifying match against Portugal this month.

The defensive player hurt his foot three weeks ago and joins offensive midfielder Anders Svensson, defender Erik Edman and second-choice goalkeeper Rami Shaaban on the injury list ahead of the Group One tie to be played in Stockholm on Oct. 11.

"I'm going to Sweden to be examined sometime in the next few days," Linderoth told the Swedish daily Aftonbladet on Wednesday.

Linderoth has been a cornerstone in the Swedish midfield for years but he did not play at this year's European championships in Austria and Switzerland because of a hip injury.

Coach Lars Lagerback named a 21-man squad on Tuesday.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Andreas Isaksson (PSV Eindhoven), Johan Wiland (Elfsborg)

Defenders: Andreas Granqvist (Groningen), Petter Hansson (Stade Rennes), Daniel Majstorovic (AEK Athens), Olof Mellberg (Juventus), Mikael Nilsson (Panathinaikos), Behrang Safari (FC Basel), Fredrik Stoor (Fulham)

Midfielders: Daniel Andersson (Malmo), Viktor Elm (Kalmar), Samuel Holmen (Brondby), Kim Kallstrom (Olympique Lyon), Sebastian Larsson (Birmingham City), Christian Wilhelmsson (Al-Hilal), Andreas Johansson (AaB Aalborg).

Strikers: Marcus Berg (Groningen), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Inter Milan), Henrik Larsson (Helsingborg), Markus Rosenberg (Werder Bremen), Johan Elmander (Bolton Wanderers).
