Mostovoi to Miss Game




MOSCOW -- Russia will be without injured midfielder Alexander Mostovoi for Wednesday's European Group 4 qualifier against Iceland, a team doctor said Monday.


"Mostovoi is definitely out for Iceland's game," Dr. Yury Vasilkov said.


The Celta Vigo playmaker, who aggravated an abdominal injury early in the first half in Saturday's qualifier against France, will be out for at least a week.


However, the Russians still hope to get back AS Roma midfielder Dmitry Alenichev just in time for Iceland.
