Liverpool keeper Reina to undergo tests on injury sustained in Spain warm-up

Liverpool will face an anxious wait over Pepe Reina’s fitness after the goalkeeper picked up a muscle injury during the half-time break in Spain’s clash with France on Tuesday night.

The Reds’ first-choice keeper was unable to take his usual place on La Roja’s bench for the game’s second half and will now undergo a physical examination upon returning to Merseyside.

Manchester City’s David Silva was substituted in the game after picking up a hamstring injury, while Alvaro Arbeloa was also withdrawn with a similar knock.

Reina told reporters: “The injury is not serious. I got injured at half-time. Today [Wednesday] I will do more tests at Liverpool.”

The Spaniard has only missed four Premier League games for the Reds since May 2007, with a run out of the team being enforced on him towards the end of last season due to suspension.
