Shevchenko down but not out

AC Milan striker Andriy Shevchenko faces a lay-off of around two weeks after injuring his right shin during Sunday's 1-0 home defeat by Bologna FC.

No serious damage
The European Footballer of the Year underwent a scan which ruled out the possibility of any serious damage to the fibula. However, he suffered heavy bruising and Shevchenko will be sidelined for a fortnight or more.

World Cup blow
The 28-year-old, who has scored 13 goals in 19 Serie A games, is therefore likely to miss league matches against FC Messina Peloro, S.S. Lazio and Reggina Calcio. In addition, he will be unavailable for Ukraine's FIFA World Cup Group 2 qualifier away to Albania on 9 February.
