Heggem to play no further part

Heggem will take no further part in Euro 2000
Norway defender Vegard Heggem will play no further part in Euro 2000 after suffering a recurrence of an old hamstring injury.

Heggem pulled up abruptly during Sunday's 1-0 defeat by Yugoslavia and team doctor Lars Engebretsen confirmed on Monday that the 24-year-old Liverpool player would be out of action for some time.

"He'll be out for six weeks probably, maybe even longer," he said.

"It is definitely not a surgical case but I've spoken to Liverpool and we have set up a protocol for what we are going to do with him.

"He will probably go up to Trondheim and train at the Rosenborg clinic hopefully for the next four to six weeks."

Light training

Engebretsen also revealed that Tottenham Hotspur forward Steffen Iversen had broken his nose during the game.

But Iversen, who scored Norway's winner against Spain in their first Group C encounter, is expected to play against Slovenia on Wednesday.

Centre-half Bjorn Otto Bragstad also needed four stitches in a cut just above his left eye, but again should be fit to play.

Norway will qualify for the quarter-finals if they beat Slovenia in Arnhem.

Injured captain Henning Berg did some light training with his teammates in sweltering conditions on Monday, and has a chance of returning to action if Norway do make it through to the last eight.
