Sneijder to miss Kazan clash

ROME - Midfielder Wesley Sneijder will miss Inter Milan's visit to Rubin Kazan in the Champions League on Tuesday after failing to recover from a hip injury, the Italian champions said on Sunday.

The injury also kept the Dutchman out of Inter's 1-0 defeat at Sampdoria in Serie A on Saturday.

Inter held European champions Barcelona to a goalless draw in their opening Group F game, while Russian side Rubin lost 3-1 at Dynamo Kiev.
