Headlines
Bad news for Manchester United as Marouane Fellaini limped off the pitch during Belgium's win over Bosnia and Herzegovina after only a half hour. Belgium manager Roberto Martinez fears there is ligament damage, meaning he could be out for quite some time. To add insult to injury, the game meant absolutely nothing to the Red Devils as they already have their spot in Russia claimed.

Chelsea's N'Golo Kante also left a World Cup Qualifier injured. He hurt his hamstring a little more than a half hour into France's 1-0 win over Bulgaria. His injury doesn't seem to be as serious as Fellaini's, but he won't feature in France's match with Belarus on Tuesday.
