Chelsea flop Fernando Torres is set to be loaned out in January if he fails to find his goalscoring boots.
A temporary deal, probably back to Spain, is being considered by Blues boss André Villas-Boas as he attempts to solve Torres’ loss of form.
He has scored just one goal since his €57million move from Liverpool. Chelsea won’t consider a loan deal with a rival English club, but accept a move back to his homeland might be the best way to revive his stuttering career.
Villas-Boas is concerned that Torres will continue to struggle if he’s overlooked and left on the bench.
They will continue to monitor his form until the transfer window opens giving him ample time to turn the corner at Chelsea.
They have not considered selling Torres because his poor form has decimated his market value.
Torres arrived at Chelsea after scoring 81 goals in 142 appearances for Liverpool, but has since found the net just once in 23 games.
Cash-rich Malaga and Torres’ former club Atletico Madrid could offer him temporary sanctuary.

All Blacks centre Ma’a Nonu, shifting out one position from his preferred berth at second five-eighth to accommodate Sonny Bill Williams, said he is looking forward to playing with his midfield rival.
The two players in theory are operating head-to-head for the honour of the All Blacks number 12 jersey, but while the Grand Slam tour last year may have had little separating the pair, coach Graham Henry has opted to start Nonu in most test matches so far this season.
Williams, who started against the Springboks in Port Elizabeth, is giving his second opportunity this year.
A chance, as Henry said, to “to force their (his) abilities on the selectors.”
Henry has said that Williams needs to measure his approach.
"Don't try and do it all in five minutes. Patience is going to be key. If he (Williams) lets his natural ability control the way he plays, he will play well."
This is something that the big centre agrees with.
"Sometimes I get a bit too excited out on the field,” he said.
But Nonu said he was excited to playing with his high profile team mate.
"Everyone knows what he can do," Nonu said.
“He's a megastar and a rock star and a great athlete.
"If he can do his magic, hopefully I can run off him."
The two will be against Andrew Ma'ilei and Sukanaivalu Hufanga in the Tongan midfield, and while there names may not be familiar to some, they have been selected based on their overall fitness.
Nonu said the Pacific Islanders would come out hard.
"I think the Tongans will be firing," Nonu said.
"They pretty much want to come out and have a good hit-out really.
"I assume they want to bash us. There'll be no love lost against the Tongans, our Tongan brothers, and it will be a good first-up game."

Only Thompson, Kikutani, Onozawa and Nicholas retained
Japan have made 11 changes to their starting line-up for their opening Rugby World Cup match against France on Saturday.
Only Luke Thompson, Takashi Kikutani, Hirotoki Onozawa and Ryan Nicholas are retained by coach John Kirwan following the 20-14 warm-up win over the USA.
"These guys are definitely the guys who are on form. We had two guys who are unavailable through injury - Justin Ives and [Yuta] Imamura - so besides those two these are the 22 that we decided are playing the best at the moment," Kirwan said.
Thompson and winger Kosuke Endo started Japan's last World Cup match against Canada in 2007, while veteran winger Hirotoki Onozawa will match the World Cup appearance record for a Japanese player - equalling Masahiro Kunda (1991-1999) and Yukio Motoki (1995-2003) on nine.
Japan: 15 Shaun Webb, 14 Kosuke Endo, 13 Koji Taira, 12 Ryan Nicholas, 11 Hirotoki Onozawa, 10 James Arlidge, 9 Fumiaki Tanaka, 8 Ryukoliniasi Holani, 7 Michael Leitch, 6 Takashi Kikutani (c), 5 Toshizumi Kitagawa, 4 Luke Thompson, 3 Kensuke Hatakeyama, 2 Shota Horie, 1 Hisateru Hirashima.Replacements: 16 Yusuke Aoki, 17 Nozomu Fujita, 18 Hitoshi Ono, 19 Itaru Taniguchi, 20 Atsushi Hiwasa, 21 Murray Williams, 22 Alisi Tupuailai.

Club chairman Tony Fernandes revealed earlier this week that he is interested in the player, while the manager admits he will "never write anything off" under the new owner.
Beckham's contract at LA Galaxy expires in November and it is anticipated that he will not renew his deal, with a return to England on the cards.
Earlier this week QPR owner, Tony Fernandes confirmed his interest in Beckham via Twitter, hinting that a deal may be on the horizon.
And when asked about a potential move Warnock told The Telegraph: "About three weeks ago I would not have dreamed to sign Joey Barton so I will never write anything off.
"The chairman has got such [an opinion]. Why accept the average when you can reach for the top? That is how he is.
"It came out of the blue. I think anything is possible. He is a very astute businessman."
Beckham has kept himself busy through the winter months when the Galaxy are not playing, spending two spells with AC Milan and last season training with Tottenham before a loan move broke down.

The Spanish midfielder is in contention to make his home debut against Swansea this weekend after completing a transfer deadline day move to Emirates Stadium last week.
Arteta sat down for an interview with Arsenal Player this week and watch the video clip now by clicking on the link to the right.
Alternatively, scroll down this page for a transcript of this exclusive interview.
Mikel, you've been an Arsenal player for a week now. Have you met your team-mates?
A few of them. Most of them are on international duty at the moment but I have trained with some of the younger lads and all of the staff apart from the manager who is away. It has been very positive.
Do you know any of the players on a personal level?
No. I knew Cesc a little bit because he is Spanish and Manuel Almunia just to say hello to when we play against each other, but not much.
How has training gone?
It was good. I only trained yesterday [Monday], but you can see that the ball is involved in every exercise, there is good tempo in training and I think it is good, very good.
Is it different to what you are used to?
At Everton I think we used to run a little bit more than what we do here, without the ball. But it has only been a day so it is hard to say. In the next few months I will be more suited to answer that question.
Is there any reason why you won't be available on Saturday?
No, I will be there.
What will you bring to this Arsenal team?
I hope to bring creativity, 100 per cent commitment, work and help the team to do better.
You are seen as a replacement for Fabregas or Nasri - do you see it like that?
No, I don't want to use the word replacement. They were two top players for the Club, they did really, really well in the last few years and now we have some new players coming in to try and make the same impact. I am sure we will. I don't want the fans to be expecting the same as them because every player is different. We need some time to adapt as well, but I am sure that we will give everything we can to make this team better.
What is your strongest position?
The manager asked me to play in every position [at Everton] and the good thing is to get different things from every position. I played a lot on the left, I played a lot in attacking midfield and I played in front of the back four as well. It depends what the manager wants here from me - I have not had a chance to speak to him about that yet.
This is a young squad so how can you help the younger players?
It is too early to say but I know what type of character I am and what I like done. Hopefully there are things which we can make sure we improve. I can advise and hopefully that is going to help them.
What have you made of Arsenal's Premier League campaign so far?
Well it is not the best of starts obviously. Looking at the other teams, at Manchester United and City, both have nine points already but it is early stages. The season is very long with the Premier League, Carling Cup, Champions League and FA Cup. There is still a lot of work to do, but we want to start winning on Saturday and get that right. From then hopefully everything is going to be more positive.
How strongly can Arsenal challenge for the title?
This club has to be there with them fighting until the very end, that is for sure. Nobody can be happy saying they are too good or have spent more money. We can fight, and I do not think that is the right mentality. We have unbelievable talent here and if we can use it the right way I am sure we can fight with them.
How will you feel if you make your debut on Saturday?
I am really excited. It has been a bit strange having been at the same club for six or seven years, and it is a big change. Even when you just put a different kit on. But I am so excited, I hope I can do my job well and if I have the chance to play, I will give everything.
Newly-promoted clubs are difficult to play at this stage, aren't they?
I agree. They have got no fear and they will come here thinking, 'if we get something it will be unbelievable.' It is a big risk so we need to handle the pressure and be patient, because obviously the fans want to see us winning now and we need to know how to manage the situation.
Will you have any nerves?
There are no nerves, just excitement. For me it is a great opportunity, a big challenge and I want to take it and enjoy every minute. That is what I am going to try and do.

PELUANG kini terbuka luas buat penyerang sensasi negara, Mohd Safee Mohd Sali mengembangkan kerjaya ke pentas bola sepak Eropah apabila secara rasmi ditawarkan menjalani ujian percubaan bersama kelab Liga Kejuaraan England, Cardiff City, 12 hingga 27 September ini.
Selain itu, penyerang sensasi berusia 27 tahun turut dikhabarkan mendapat tawaran ujian percubaan bersama kelab Liga Perdana Inggeris, Queens Park Rangers (QPR) serta lima kelab dari Jerman, tetapi tiada tawaran rasmi diterima setakat ini.
“Jika berjaya, Safee berpeluang beraksi terus dengan Cardiff City secara pinjaman dan tak perlu menunggu pintu perpindahan Januari depan,” kata pengurus peribadi Safee, Zakaria Rahim ketika dihubungi, semalam.
Namun segalanya bergantung kepada pelepasan majikan Safee ketika ini, Pelita Jaya yang kini dalam persiapan menghadapi menghadapi saingan musim baru Liga Super Indonesia (ISL) bermula 8 Oktober ini.
Safee yang nyata teruja dengan tawaran ujian berkenaan berkata: “Sejak kecil saya sentiasa mengimpikan untuk beraksi di England. Kini saya mendapat peluang menjalani ujian. Ia umpama peluang sekali seumur hidup dan saya akan cuba membuktikan kemampuan diri.”
Dua minggu lalu, kapten skuad kebangsaan, Safiq Rahim terlebih dahulu mendapat tawaran ujian percubaan bersama Cardiff City.
Hmmm. It's not like backline selections haven't exactly bitten the All Blacks on their backsides at recent World Cups, mostly in midfield. Remember Mils Muliaina playing out of position in 2007, ditto Leon MacDonald in 2003 and ditto Christian Cullen in 1999?
In this instance it appears less a possibility of picking the wrong guy for the assignment, as deciding which of two very strong candidates to go with, but it has to be concerning that with the World Cup upon us, Henry still hasn't nutted out the makeup of his premier back three. He's also admitted to uncertainties around No 9 and plenty of "competition" in the second row and midfield.
Yesterday Henry named Dagg - at Mils Muliaina's expense -- as his fullback to face Tonga in tomorrow night's tournament opener, teaming him with Richard Kahui and Isaia Toeava in an entirely rejigged back three on the back of the Brisbane stumble. He has also found space for the polarising Sonny Bill Williams, with Ma'a Nonu moving out a spot to form the most muscular of midfields.
But the fact that the coach has gone with a heavily experimental backline rather clouds the significance of the selection for what should be an interesting pipe-opener. With Tonga's vast Auckland population rallying round their men, everyone's anticipating a fiery challenge - starting with the Sipi Tau, and extending into the real affray.
What to make then of this selection, with Keven Mealamu, Conrad Smith, Piri Weepu, Cory Jane and Muliaina all judged surplus to starting requirements? Traditionally the All Blacks like to open up with their top lineup, but here they may just have put the cart before the horse, and got their experimenting in early.
That's why Henry asked us not to read too much into some of his selections.
Andrew Hore starts at hooker with Mealamu rested altogether, Ali Williams comes in at lock with Sam Whitelock the designated loose forward cover on the bench, Jerome Kaino is back at No 6 (for the injured Adam Thomson); and in the backs everyone bar Dan Carter and Nonu is new.
Henry said Dagg and Muliaina were "competing for the opportunity" of being that No.1 fullback, and the Hawke's Bay wunderkind just happened to get first crack.
"Nobody is ahead," said Henry. "Israel has done something remarkable to overcome a major leg injury and play like he did in South Africa. We have got a huge amount of respect for the boy and what he has done.
"But that was a one-off and now he knows he is up for potential selection in the top team. That brings extra pressure and how is he going to handle that?
"Mils has played 98 tests and been one of the top No 15s in the world for a long time. He's having a bit of a flat patch at the moment but knowing Mils he will respond to the competition and it will be a real dogfight."
Henry said he was relaxed about shifting Nonu to centre to give Sonny Bill Williams a chance to live up to, er, his entourage's billing.
"We don't know what is going to be happening later in the tournament, who is going to be standing and who isn't, so we have to give players opportunities to force their abilities on the selectors."
Hardly a ringing endorsement if you're still an S-B-Dubya man, but at least he gets a shot. From his perspective, Williams is just "excited" to get the chance. We know that because he told us about 17 times.
Henry's advice to his No 12: "Don't try and do it all in five minutes. Patience is going to be key. If he lets his natural ability control the way he plays, he will play well."
Williams says he's all about "fitting in" and "toning it down". He adds: "Sometimes I get a bit too excited out on the field. We've talked about that."
Keep a close eye on Dagg and Williams tomorrow. They're very much men on a mission.
Loosehead prop Tony Woodcock took a full part in All Blacks training yesterday, and looks set to take his place in the lineup after suffering a hamstring tweak.
ALL BLACKS: Israel Dagg, Richard Kahui, Ma'a Nonu, Sonny Bill Williams, Isaia Toeava, Dan Carter, Jimmy Cowan, Victor Vito, Richie McCaw (capt), Jerome Kaino, Ali Williams, Brad Thorn, Owen Franks, Andrew Hore, Tony Woodcock. Reserves: Corey Flynn, Ben Franks, Anthony Boric, Sam Whitelock, Piri Weepu, Colin Slade, Cory Jane.

Real Madrid want Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez.
Real Madrid could make a January bid for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, it has been claimed.
According to El Mundo Deportivo, Real president Florentino Perez is striving desperately to bring a marquee signing to the Santiago Bernabeu in the new year, while Jose Mourinho is keen on Chicharito.
United, though, will reportedly attempt to tie Hernandez down to a new long-term deal after he enjoyed a sensational debut season at Old Trafford.
It is little wonder then that 23-year-old is alleged to be attracting interest from elsewhere, although United are said to be confident he will commit to the club.
Hernandez has made two substitute appearances for United this season, having suffered a head injury during pre-season.

Michael Owen insists Barcelona hold no fears for United as the Reds prepare to kick-off another Champions League campaign next week.
The 3-1 defeat at Wembley in May was a humbling experience for a side that had won the domestic title by nine points and the Catalan giants are strong favourites with the bookmakers to retain the trophy in Munich next year.
Owen, who was an unused substitute for the final, is raring to go ahead of the trip to Benfica as he awaits his first involvement of the new campaign.
"If we played Barcelona again in the final, then we'd have to do something differently because they obviously outplayed us on the night," he explained to Inside United, the official club magazine.
"Then again, I don't think there's any shame in losing to a team like that. We're not ashamed of how we played at Wembley but, if we played them again, then I do think we'd have to look at adopting a slightly different approach.
"On that one night's evidence, you'd have to say that there was a gap between the two sides because they beat us quite convincingly. But that was a one-off game. We wouldn't be frightened of playing them again, that's for sure."
Owen, who has plenty of experience in Europe, is hoping to play his part in the Champions League programme as United aim to top Group C, which kicks off on September 14.
"I can't wait," he enthused. "The beauty of playing for a club like Manchester United is that you have a good chance of winning every competition you take part in.

Sir Alex Ferguson has already seen off a few pretenders to his Manchester United throne, and he intends to repel a few more even though he will celebrate his 70th birthday later this year.On November 6, it will be 25 years since Ferguson was appointed United manager. It is also nearly a decade since he performed a U-turn on his retirement plans.
What has followed, in addition to five more Premier League titles and another Champions League triumph, has been a guessing game about when Ferguson will eventually call it a day and who will be his successor.
Current favourite is Jose Mourinho, although a mounting disciplinary sheet at Real Madrid is not helping his cause.
Yet, speaking to the Italian media in Rome, Ferguson confirmed he was going nowhere.
‘Over the years I’ve had the question who do I think could replace me? Now in those years, some of the coaches they were talking about don’t have jobs any more,’ he said.
‘So it becomes very difficult because someone who I think has potential may be sacked by his club and disappear.
‘I think you would need someone very experienced in the long term. But I have absolutely no idea. First of all, I’m not retiring.’
Ferguson also revealed his failure to sign Wesley Sneijder this summer was because the Dutchman could not fill Paul Scholes’ old role. ‘He’s a fantastic player but he was not who we were looking for to replace Scholes,’ he added.

Cristiano Ronaldo has certainly made himself heard in the media this week, and this time around his comments are a little less defensive, rather, the Portuguese winger went on to praise his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson. Ronaldo also failed to rule out a move back to England sometime in the future.
In an interview, Ronaldo compared Ferguson and Jose Mourinho, praising both managers immensely.
Ronaldo said, “Sir Alex Ferguson is my second dad—he helped me a lot to improve and now Mr. Mourinho too because they are experienced managers who win many things, so for me they are the best coaches.I have good memories from Manchester and when I watch sometimes the games I miss it a lot because it's a part of me I left in England."
Ronaldo said that the reason he moved from the Premier League was because he wanted a challenge. He was comfortable with Manchester United, but felt he could prove more.
Going on to say, “The most important reason why I moved is the challenge because I really like to put myself under pressure to see what I can do. But I really miss the Premier League—for me it is, along with the Spanish league, the best league in the world.”
When asked about a possible move back to the English Premier League, Ronaldo went on to discuss that he does not like to close opportunities.
Responding to the question with, “Why not? I hope so one day, but you never know. The team that I like more in England is Manchester, but I cannot say that I am going to play there one day because I am very, very happy in Madrid. I've said a few times that, if Madrid want, I can sign for 10 years more until the end of my career, but nobody knows the future. I cannot lie to you and say I will stay here 10 years, that I am not going to come back to Manchester. It is not fair on my part. Let's see what future God has prepared for me.”
So it begs the question. Will Cristiano Ronaldo return to the English Premier League one day?

Manchester United – Cristiano Ronaldo says he may come back to Old Trafford.
Ronaldo made 196 appearances for Manchester United between 2003-2009, scoring 84 goals. He moved to Real Madrid for a record £80 million fee in 2009, and last May the Portuguese international broke the record for the most goals scored in a season in the history of La Liga.
While United fans would love for Ronaldo to make a return to Old Trafford, the 26-year-old says he would only consider a move if the timing is right.
"I don't close the door, so maybe in the future I hope so, because I know the league, I know the players, I know the atmosphere,” Ronaldo told Sky Sports News.
"I've said a few times that, if Madrid want, I can sign for ten years more until the finish of my career but nobody knows the future.
“I cannot lie to you and say I will stay here ten years, that I am not going to come back to Manchester. It is not fair on my part. Let's see what future God has prepared for me."
Yesterday Sir Alex Ferguson revealed that Ronaldo was one of the strongest players he’s ever managed, telling reporters: "Who is the strongest player I have coached? I cannot pick one in particular, but Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs have been fantastic.”

'Maldini Thought I Was Crazy' - Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson Reveals Approach For AC Milan Legend..
A move for the Italy great was instantly rejected, while Inter's Sneijder is not the right man to replace Paul Scholes as Jose Mourinho finds an ally who has come to his defence.
Ferguson made no secret of his admiration for the former defender, who spent his entire career at San Siro before hanging up his boots in 2009.
The coach said he was eager to see Maldini's feet hit the ground at Old Trafford, but the player's father Cesare put a stop to any subsequent move.
"I made a question to Maldini's father and he looked at me as if I was crazy. He said 'what??' That was enough for me to understand it was a no," Ferguson told Il Corriere dello Sport in a video interview.
Another Italy-based player who was heavily linked with a summer departure to Manchester is Inter's Wesley Sneijder.
But Ferguson suggested the 27-year-old Netherlands international was not required despite being tipped as a replacement for Paul Scholes.
Sneijder said he was made aware of an interest from England, but the move fizzled out.
"Sneijder is not the ideal replacement for Scholes. He is a fantastic player, but not what we were looking for. Only [Barcelona's] Xavi and Iniesta can be compared to Scholes," said the coach.
And he explained why the Englishman, and Welshman Ryan Giggs, always sought to demonstrate their loyalty over the years.
"Giggs and Scholes were with me since they were 13 years of age," Ferguson said.
"They were young boys; they kept their feet on the ground and were very humble.
"They are an excellent example for young players."
Jose Mourinho has come under a storm of criticism for his recent actions against Barcelona in the Supercopa brawl last month.
But the former Chelsea and Inter coach has found an ally in Ferguson, who defended his ways of reaching stupendous goals with Real Madrid.
"The thing about the enthusiasm with coaches like Mourinho, I don't think there is anything wrong with that," said Ferguson.
"I was like that when I was young. When I was young I was always out there all the time.
"That is the way Mourinho is, that is his nature. Some coaches sit there and take notes, but I can never do that. I don't do that.
"I rely on my brain to remember things. If you think about when Porto scored against Manchester United at Old Trafford...Mourinho started running like a madman. I thought to myself, 'I used to do that myself'.
"At the time you can be angry about it, but there is nothing wrong with enthusiasm.
"You dont want to embarrass yourself. People recognise the enthusiasm and supporters know the coach is fighting for them."
On his ties with United over the years, the coach said he had never any reason to consider his tenure there.
"There was no way I was ever thinking of leaving Manchester United. Everything was there for me.
"The challenge I needed was there and also the expectation means you never have an easy day. Every day is thrown with a challenge."

Manchester United – Wesley Sneijder move could be renewed next window.
"Mourinho called me and he told me to stay. He has an Inter heart and he has always told me to remain," Sneijder told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I am happy to have stayed because I never wanted to leave and so I no longer want to speak about Manchester United."
But the paper is reporting that Sneijder still thinks a move to United is possible in January, if the parties can agree to an acceptable deal over his transfer fee and wage. The Dutchman is currently on £200,000 a week, an amount that no United player comes close to, and is said to be worth around £30 million.
"Wesley wanted to go to United and was in negotiations until quite late. They couldn't agree terms but he is still saying he will end up at United,” a source said.
Speculation was certainly rife that Sir Alex Ferguson might make a shock last-minute move for Sneijder, but the manager was spectacularly quiet on deadline day, sticking to his three June signings to bolster the United squad for the season ahead.

'Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo Is One Of The Strongest Players I Have Coached' - Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson Picks His Favourites..
The Old Trafford mastermind cannot choose the best as he provides a handful of top names while having a pop at player agents during transfer dealings.
The Premier League boss has seen his fair share of stars pass through his hands during a glorious career at Old Trafford.
And he has picked a handful of names he believes have been the greatest under his leadership.
"Who is the strongest player I have coached? I cannot pick one in particular, but Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs have been fantastic," Ferguson told reporters during a speech he gave at the University of Tor Vegata, located in the Italian capital Rome.
Speaking of the transfer market, United were keen on Inter's Wesley Sneijder, but the move never took flight, Ferguson said: "Regarding the transfer market, the player is never there when it is time to negotiate.
"Sometimes I wonder whether agents work for themselves or for the players."
On the Premier League's meteoric rise over the years compared to Italian and Spanish football, the coach added: "English football is going through a good moment and I hope this continues, but there has been a rise from the big Spanish clubs [in Europe]."

Both frontmen are relatively new additions to the Premier League but have made instant impacts with Suarez already netting three times this season for Liverpool following his January transfer.
Hernandez has been a Manchester United player for just over a year and enjoyed a successful debut season for the Premier League champions by scoring 20 times.
This has alerted Spanish giants Real Madrid who are apparently keen on adding the duo to their star-studded line-up. Whether Jose Mourinho’s side make their move in the January or summer window is unclear.

SINGAPORE - Iraqi head coach Zico has slammed the artificial turf at Singapore's Jalan Besar stadium, deeming it unprofessional ahead of their Asian World Cup qualifying clash on Tuesday.
The Brazil great told reporters on the eve of the match that the pitch was not suitable for World Cup qualifying matches and suggested it would be more appropriate for schoolboy soccer.
"I don't like the field, the grass. I think the good game is on natural grass," the 58-year-old former midfielder said.
"Maybe for schools, for the youths, it is ok, but not professional (soccer). Qualifiers for the World Cup need natural grass," he added.
The synthetic surface at the interim soccer arena was approved for competition by FIFA as the city-state awaits the 2014 completion of it's National Sports Hub, which will include a 55,000-seater stadium with a retractable roof.
Zico, often referred to as the 'White Pele', was also unhappy with the lack of recovery time between matches following Friday's 2-0 loss to Jordan in the opening Group A encounter in the third round of Asian World Cup qualifying.
"After the game, (it is) not possible to relax, the players are tired, they have to take a flight, a long flight," he complained.
"The last day's travel was difficult for us, 30 hours from Iraq to here.
"It is difficult for the players, (they are) not machines. Two games in four days, in this moment, for Iraq (it) is very bad."
China, who beat Singapore 2-1 on Friday, and Jordan top the standings on three points apiece ahead of their clash in Amman on Tuesday, with the top two teams from the group advancing to the final stage of qualification for the 2014 finals in Brazil.

Manchester United winger Nani is determined to prove himself once and for all this season as the battle for wing places at Old Trafford heats up.
Despite some sparkling early season performances which went a long way towards him eventually capturing the club's 2010/2011 players' player of the year prize, the Portugal winger's form eventually dipped.
As the downturn coincided with Antonio Valencia's return from an ankle injury, it cost Nani his place in Ferguson's Champions League final starting line-up.
The former Sporting Lisbon star has swallowed his disappointment and with Ashley Young providing even more competition for the wide roles, is eager to reach an even higher level.
"I hope this is my year," he said.
"Last year was my best year, definitely my most consistent season.
"This is a big chance to show I can do much more, that I'm a good player with a very strong mentality."
It is also Nani's chance to step out of the shadows of his illustrious countryman and former United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, to whom comparisons are always made.
"For five years, every time the question is the same," he said.
"It's all about Ronaldo. You have to be him. Are you doing the same? Do you think you can do it now?
"Always when I do something good it's the same. When I do OK, it's nothing. When I do something very good, they come with this question about him.
"But it's OK. It doesn't change anything in me. This is my fifth year here and people know what I can do."

Darren Fletcher made a bittersweet return to first team football as he captained Scotland to a draw against Czech Republic.
Although the point puts Scotland on the back foot in their attempts to qualify for the European Championships, the Manchester United midfielder played a full 90 minutes or the first time since last season and notched The Scot’s second at Hampden Park.
But despite the draw, which leaves Scotland third in Group I, five points behind Czech Republic and ten behind Spain, Fletcher is delighted to get a full game under his belt as he strives to break back into the United first team.
"I felt good," reflected Fletcher. "I had to dig in for the last 20 minutes but I've been in that position before so it wasn't strange for me to do that. But I feel good and I've no knocks or anything like that."
On Scotland’s plight in Group I, Fletcher said: "What's done is done, we've got to keep on fighting, get the fans behind us on Tuesday, get the three points [against Lithuania] and put some pressure on the Czechs in their remaining two games.
"The Czechs have got hard games, and while I'm not saying ours are easy, it's been a difficult group and a lot of points have been dropped along the way. We've just got to win our games and not end the group on a whimper. We've got to keep fighting because stranger things have happened."

Goalkeeper Kuszcak has made just 26 appearances for Manchester United since signing in 2007 and is said to be keen to find a club where he can gain more match experience. He attracted attention from CSKA Moscow during the transfer season, but no formal bid was received, and while United were unable to offload the 29 year old Poland international before deadline day, he’s hoping to be able to secure a move after the loan window opens next week.
Mame Diouf is also reportedly looking for a loan move away from Manchester United, with the forward facing limited selection opportunities this season. The Senegalese striker received interest ahead of the transfer deadline , having spent last season on loan with Blackburn, and Blackburn manager Steve Kean was reported to be considering bringing the 23-year-old back to Ewood Park.
During his time with Blackburn, Diouf netted six goals in 30 appearances, but returned to Old Trafford at the end of the last campaign.
The Norwegian has since been linked with a move to former club FK Molde, the club who gave Diouf his first crack at football in Europe and who are managed by former United favourite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils striker wants to make his presence felt this season after struggling to break into the team and being linked with a loan move away from Old Trafford.
The Italy Under-21 international was linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the summer, with Newcastle United and QPR keen on signing the striker on loan.
But the youngster has remained with Sir Alex Ferguson's side and is aiming to train hard to show his worth.
He said on Twitter: “Tomorrow back to training. I’m gonna train so hard this season and show people that I’m here as well. I’m ready to show what I can do!”
Macheda announced himself to the fans spectacularly as a 17-year-old, scoring a stoppage-time winner against Aston Villa towards the end of the 2008-09 Premier League season, but he has been unable to break into the first team with injury disrupting his progress.
After spending the second half of last season on loan at Sampdoria, the striker got off to a good start during pre-season for United, scoring a brace in the opening game of their tour of the United States against New England Revolution.
But the Italian faces stiff competition for a starting place at Old Trafford, with Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, Dimitar Berbatov, Danny Welbeck, Michael Owen and Mame Biram Diouf all battling for a spot in attack.

Wayne Rooney’s rampaging start to the 2011/12 season has earned him ManUtd.com's Player of the Month accolade for August.
The striker’s five goals in three games, including a setpiece hat-trick against Arsenal, helped him to edge out Ashley Young in the polls on our seven official websites – ManUtd.com and its Arabic, Chinese, French, Japanese, Korean and Spanish versions.
Rooney gleaned 41 per cent of the votes, while Young - himself the scorer of two goals against the Gunners and the creator of six August strikes - gained 38.5 per cent.
There was little to separate the other five players we shortlisted on 30 August. For example, third-placed Danny Welbeck was just one vote ahead of his good friend and the team-mate who set up his headed goal in the 3-0 win over Tottenham, Tom Cleverley.
Anderson (5th), Phil Jones (6th) and Chris Smalling (7th) were the other nominees in a month when the Reds racked up maximum league points and brought home the Community Shield after a thrilling Wembley derby win over Manchester City.
