Shrimpers pull Eastwood out

17 May 2007 - 08:06:58

Southend United have pulled injured striker Freddy Eastwood out of the Wales squad to face New Zealand and the Czech Republic.

The 23-year-old hitman - who has scored 65 times in three seasons for the Shrimpers - has failed to recover from a back injury in time to make his international debut in a friendly with New Zealand on May 26.

John Toshack's side then face Czech Republic in a Euro 2008 qualifier seven days later.

"Unfortunately we have had to pull Freddy out of the Wales squad," physio John Stannard told the club's official website.

"His back hasn't healed as quickly as we'd hoped and Freddy isn't ready for kicking a football, let alone the international stage.

"We're looking at another three to four weeks of intensive physio before he is fully fit."
