Striker Kuyt suffers injury blow

Kuyt celebrates his goal against San Marino

Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt has picked up a shoulder injury during training with the Netherlands, according to Dutch boss Bert van Marwijk.

Van Marwijk claimed the player had "strained and possibly torn ligaments in his shoulder" after falling awkwardly at the ADO Den Hague stadium.

Kuyt, 30, is out of Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier with Finland, although the extent of the damage is not yet clear.

A Liverpool spokesman would not comment as Kuyt was on international duty.

The Dutchman scored from the penalty spot in the Netherlands' 5-0 victory over San Marino in their opening Group E match on Friday, but his only goal for Liverpool so far this season came in the 2-1 win at Trabzonspor in the Uefa Cup.

He had been linked with a move to Inter Milan, managed by old boss Rafael Benitez, but after the Trabzonspor game the striker pledged his future to the Reds.

Kuyt said: "As far as I know my future is at Liverpool.

"I have had a great time here so far and hope my future here will be great as well and that I can win trophies with Liverpool."
