Bournemouth attacker King suffers hamstring strain

Bournemouth attacker Josh King has suffered a hamstring scare in action for Norway.

King put his country ahead in a Euro 2020 qualifier against Malta last night after seven minutes, but the game was level at the break.

Norway went on to win 2-1 thanks to an Alexander Sorloth effort, with King missing a second-half penalty in Ta' Qali.

But King did not last the full game, withdrawn in the 89th minute in place of Fredrik Ulvestad.

He later told TV2 his hamstring was "a little sore", adding that he will need to get assessed upon his return to Cherries this week.
