Everton wait on Jacobsen injury

Jacobsen has yet to make his first appearance for Everton

Everton are waiting to find out the extent of Lars Jacobsen's injury after the defender damaged his shoulder playing for Denmark on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old was replaced at half-time during Denmark's 3-2 victory over Portugal in Lisbon.

Everton's medical staff will now assess whether Jacobsen has dislocated his shoulder when he returns to the UK.

The defender has yet to make his debut for Everton after signing from Nurnberg on a free transfer last month.


Denmark coach Morten Olsen said after the World Cup qualifier: "Our first thoughts are for Jacobsen who went to the hospital.

"We hope he can return home with the team."

The shoulder injury is another blow for the defender, who was limited to just seven appearances for German club Nurnberg last season because of injury problems.

Everton manager David Moyes had pencilled Jacobsen in to make his debut against Stoke on Sunday.
