INTERNAZIONALE coach Hector Cuper has been forced to omit Christian Vieri from his squad for their Champions League opener with Arsenal.

The Italian marksman has failed to shake off the effects of an ankle injury picked up on international duty, ruling him out of Wednesday's clash.

Inter's medical team put the Azzurri ace through his paces on Monday but he failed to prove his fitness and was duly left out of the squad for the trip to Highbury.

Also out is Alvaro Recoba, who has a muscular problem, but Andy van der Meyde and Emre will make the trip after shaking off their respective leg injuries.

Squad: Toldo, Fontana; Cordoba, J.Zanetti, Helveg, Adani, Cannavaro, Materazzi, Pasquale; Emre, C.Zanetti, van der Meyde, Lamouchi, Luciano, Kily Gonzalez, Okan; Kallon, Cruz, Martins.
