Uruguay coach Coito eases Arsenal injury fears over Torreira

Uruguay coach Fabian Coito has eased injury fears around Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira.

Torreira is likely to be fit for Saturday's trip to Newcastle.

The Uruguay international was withdrawn at half-time of Uruguay's friendly against Mexico.

Uruguay caretaker boss Coito has revealed, however, that Torreria's injury was not serious.

“I took Torreira out as a precaution," Coito said, before adding that the midfielder had complained that his calf had felt a bit tight during the first half.
