LIVERPOOL stars Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman have been ruled out of England's World Cup qualifying opener in Moldova. But new coach Glenn Hoddle, reduced to just 20 players and still sweating on the fitness of Paul Gascoigne, David Batty and Les Ferdinand, is still resisting calling for further reinforcements. The young Liverpool strikers, both suffering from back injuries, arrived to meet their new boss but it was immediately apparent they had no chance of making the flight to Kishinev. 'They have had some scans and X-rays and they're out. The more important thing for me was to get them down here and have a chat. To go another five weeks without that chance would have been foolish,' said Hoddle. Gascoigne, who underwent a scan on his troublesome Achilles on Tuesday, played in Hoddle's first practice match against England's Under-21s on Wednesday.
