Belarus's strikers Vital Kutuzov and Roman Vasilyuk will not play in a Euro'2008 qualifier against Luxenbourg and in a friendly match against Israel, Belarus manager Bendt Stange on Monday told a news conference in Minsk. "Two players are not able to join the squad. We have just learned that Vasiluyk was injured during the latest game in the Belarus Championship. Our medics checked him and concluded that he would be sidelined for the matches against Luxembourg and Israel.

The Belarusian Football Federation has also stressed the private problems of Vital Kutuzov...With approval by the federation, we have ruled Kutuzov out for the next two games.

If he feels good and remains clear of injuries and plays a good football, he will join the squad in Euro'2008 qualifiers against the Netherlands and Albania", Stange said.
