Injuries to several key players mean that Paris Saint-Germain's trip to struggling Evian in Ligue 1 on Friday may prove a stiffer test than the reigning champions bargained for. With captain Thiago Silva already out for several weeks with a hamstring injury, PSG saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic go off with a slight muscle tear in his side early in last week's 2-0 home win against SC Bastia. A first Ligue 1 win of the campaign for Laurent Blanc's side was also overshadowed by a fractured vertebra suffered by Gregory Van der Wiel, while midfielder Thiago Motta's nose was fractured following an ugly clash with Bastia's Brazilian striker Brandao in the tunnel after the game.

Tottenham Hotspur closed in on a place in the group stage of the Europa League on Thursday after coming from behind to win 2-1 away to AEL Limassol in Cyprus in their play-off first leg. The north London side are looking to reach the group stage for the fourth season running, and late goals by Roberto Soldado and Harry Kane have them in the driving seat ahead of next week's return at White Hart Lane. Spanish striker Adrian Sardinero opened the scoring in the 14th minute for AEL, who finished second in the Cypriot top flight last season and parachuted into the Europa League after losing to Zenit St Petersburg in the Champions League third qualifying round.

(Reuters) – U.S national team goalkeeper Tim Howard says he will take a year off from international duty in order to spend more time with his family. Howard, who will continue to play in England's Premier League with Everton, has been capped 104 times by the U.S. Soccer Federation on Thursday, Howard, 35, said he had told U.S. Jurgen has always been up front with all the players in saying you have to earn your place, which is something I agree with, so I look forward to coming back next fall and competing for a spot." Howard's absence will open the way for Aston Villa keeper Brad Guzan to become first choice keeper while Real Salt Lake's Nick Rimando, who was the third keeper at the World Cup in Brazil, could also get chances to start.
