Serero doubtful for Sudan clash


The Ajax Amsterdam playmaker was substituted late in his side's 1-1 Dutch Eredivisie draw against Kamahelo Mokotjo's FC Twente on Saturday night.

Ajax coach Frank de Boer has confirmed that Serero will miss the Uefa Champions League clash against Barcelona on Tuesday night, although the exact extent of the injury is still to be determined.

Hamstring injuries typically have a three-week minimum recovery time, meaning Serero will likely be short of match fitness when South Africa take on Sudan at home on November 15.

However, both club and country will be hoping for better news from the results of a scan on the injury.
