Fellaini limps out of Belgium match

Fellaini limps out of Belgium match

Manchester United face a nervous wait to confirm the full extent of Marouane Fellaini's injury after the midfielder limped off in the first half of Belgium's World Cup qualifier against Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday afternoon.

Fellaini was moving with some difficulty before signalling to the bench that he was hurt and laying on the ground with his side 1-0 up.

Fellaini pulled up and required attention from Belgium's medical team before being replaced by Leander Dendoncker.

We are all anxious about Fellaini.

A Belgian FA official also confirmed the injury, and said: "It is something to be anxious about on first sight". There are fears that he has suffered knee ligament damage.

Japan perplexed over decision to award Peace Prize to ICAN
As long as Kim Jong Un is pumping resources into North Korea's missile programs, it's hard to envision disarmament. In recognition of that work, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has awarded ICAN the Nobel Peace Prize .

Fellaini lasted just 29 minutes of the 4-3 win before being substituted after a Bosnian player landed awkwardly on his left knee.

Jose Mourinho's season so far at Manchester United has gone swimmingly. "We fear that there's ligament damage".

United already have a number of injury problems to contend with ahead of the resumption of the Premier League, when they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool, and Fellaini's injury will only compound those woes.

The Belgian scored twice against Crystal Palace in the final match before the global break and has been preferred in midfield ahead of Ander Herrera, the club's player of the year last season.

Star striker Romelu Lukaku has not been made available to play for Belgium against Bosnia this evening because of a knock, but teammate Marouane Fellaini - who looks reborn under Mourinho this season - was indeed handed a start.
