England look certain to be without Wayne Rooney for their first two World Cup qualifiers.

The Everton striker is recovering well from the fractured metatarsal he suffered against Portugal at Euro 2004.

However, he will not be able to resume even light jogging duties for another fortnight, leaving him with little time to get match-fit before the international matches against Austria and Poland on September 4 and 8.

"Wayne has had a scan and we have been advised that it will be another two weeks at least before he can start light jogging," said Everton boss David Moyes.

"We are staying cautious and not taking any chances on his fitness."

Goodison physio Mick Rathbone added: "There are very good signs of healing, and we are all very pleased with his progress. So far so good.

He is going to be a big loss to Everton in the opening games. If they don't get him back quick they could be contenders for relegation. It also looks like they are losing the race to sign Carrick.

They won't rush him back and i think they will struggle without him.

Things are looking grim for Everton
