Liverpool have confirmed that Harry Kewell has torn a muscle in his groin.
Liverpool have confirmed that Harry Kewell has torn a muscle in his groin, although he is still expected to be fit for the start of the World Cup finals.
The Australian limped out of the FA Cup final victory over West Ham, just after half time on Saturday.
The 27-year-old has now been diagnosed with a tear in his groin, which is set to sideline him for around three weeks - which will be a worry for Aussie coach Guus Hiddink, as the SocceRoos' first match comes against Japan on June 12.
"We liaised closely with the Australian national team medical staff and their physio actually accompanied our club doctor to the scan," Liverpool spokesman Ian Cotton revealed.
"That scan has shown Harry has torn one of his groin muscles.
"It has been agreed that Harry will receive treatment at Melwood for the next 10 days before joining up with his international team-mates in Holland.
"We expect him to be playing again within the next two to three weeks."
