Wayne Rooney will be out of action for at least another three weeks as he recovers from a broken foot.
The 18-year-old is not now expected to make his Manchester United debut until 3 October, six days before England play Wales in a World Cup qualifier.
"Wayne is coming along fine, but after the injury he has had, he is still working with the remedial department," said United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
"He is training on his own and he should be ready in maybe three weeks."
