Hugo Lloris will be out for around four weeks with a hamstring injury and could miss Tottenham's first match in this season's Champions League.

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained the injury during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Everton and is likely to sit out Tottenham's next three Premier League matches, including home games against Crystal Palace and Liverpool, as well as a trip to Stoke.

Joao Havelange, head of soccer's ruling body FIFA from 1974 to 1998 and a former member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), died in a Rio de Janeiro hospital yesterday at the age of 100.

Jack Butland could be fit for Stoke's Premier League home clash with Manchester City this weekend, which could mean Irish keeper Shay Given will revert back to the bench.

Bastian Schweinsteiger will play a farewell match for Germany in this month's friendly against Finland in Monchengladbach.
