Anderson boost for United

19 Jun 2008 - 15:32:29

Manchester United have received a boost after hearing an injury picked up by midfielder Anderson on international duty may not be too serious.

The 20-year-old twisted his left knee and was substituted during the first half of Brazil's goalless World Cup qualifier against Argentina on Wednesday night.

Ironically, the attacking midfielder picked up the injury following a challenge with Liverpool's Argentina international Javier Mascherano.

However despite fears of ligament damage, Brazilian medical officials have suggested the injury is not too serious.

The problem though could still keep him out of the under-23 side which is scheduled to play a friendly in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday.

"Anderson felt an injury to his knee, a twist," said Brazil team doctor Jose Luiz Runco.

"However, it doesn't seem so serious. We will be sure only after the MRI scans.

"Only after the scans will we be able to make a decision about Anderson's participation in Sunday's match."
