Rio Ferdinand's toe is not broken

It was a very scary moment for him. Rio Ferdinand pulled up in the final minute of the Reds 2-1 win at Watford on Saturday afternoon, with initial fears he was to spend a spell on the sidelines.

But it's good to know that a scan on Sunday suggested the injury may not be so bad, and further examinations has confirmed the damage is just superficial bruising.

Not only is this a boost for Manchester United, but it also means Ferdinand will link up with the England squad for their Euro 2008 qualifiers facing Andorra and Macedonia. He must be back in one week
