Tests have confirmed that Jonathan Woodgate suffered a hamstring strain in Real Madrid's defeat to Arsenal.

The defender limped off after nine minutes, sparking fears that he may have torn his left hamstring.

The club did not give a comeback date for Woodgate, who has suffered a series of thigh problems since joining the Spanish giants in 2004.

The former Newcastle centre-back remains hopeful of winning a place in England's World Cup squad.
