Smalling out for a month

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has been ruled out for a month with a broken foot, manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed. The 21-year-old missed Saturday’s win at Everton with the injury. Smalling's lay-off means he will miss England’s November friendlies against Spain and Sweden. Ferguson said: “Smalling has a small fracture on his foot. I think he’ll be out for a month and it’s unfortunate that one.”
