The top stories making Wednesday's back pages in the UK...

The Sun: Arsenal want to prise Didier Drogba away from Shanghai Shenhua.

Also: England's footballers brought the nation crashing down to earth last night.


Daily Mirror: Roy Hodgson watched 10-man England held to a desperate draw as Ukraine brought a halt to a glorious summer of sport. 

Also: Patrice Evra is facing the axe for Manchester United this weekend.

And: Liverpool are battling with Juventus for Argentinian starlet Luciano Vietto.

Plus: Manchester United are watching Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi.


Daily Star: Frank Lampard rescued England with an 86th-minute penalty at Wembley.

Also: Aleksandar Kolarov let his feet do the talking as Chris Coleman's poor run continued.


Daily Mail: Frank Lampard's late penalty saved Roy Hodgson from feeling as sick as those players missing with a virus.

Also: Queens Park Rangers have shipped out one aggressive 'philosopher' and replaced him with another.

And: Manchester United forward Robin van Persie was taken off at half-time with a suspected thigh injury in Holland’s 4-1 World Cup qualifying win in Hungary.


Daily Express: England skipper Steven Gerrard was sent off as England stumbled to an unconvincing World Cup qualifying draw at Wembley.

Also: The FA will start John Terry's racism hearing on September 24. Officials at Wembley had hoped to deal with the matter sooner but there has been a delay in appointing the three-man Independent Regulatory Commission for what is an extremely sensitive case.

And: Manchester United have played down Sir Alex Ferguson’s meeting with Pep Guardiola in New York.


Metro: Manchester United are sweating over an injury to star striker Robin van Persie after the £24million man was taken off at half-time of Holland’s 4-1 win in Hungary with a suspected thigh injury.

Also: Midfielder Esteban Granero has said it was easy to leave Real Madrid for QPR and has insisted that he misses nothing about life at the Bernabeu.

And: Frank Lampard spared England’s blushes with a penalty after Ukraine threatened to inflict a shock defeat on Roy Hodgson’s men at Wembley.


Daily Telegraph: Frank Lampard rescued England here last night, striking a late penalty after a largely abject performance by Roy Hodgson's side. England's saviour also finished as their leader after Steven Gerrard was deservedly dismissed for two yellow cards. 

Also: Scotland suffered a second draw in four days and may live to rue the loss of four valuable home points.


The Guardian: Apparently the England side are now officially the third best international team in the World. Or, at least that is what FIFA would like us to believe through its increasingly perplexing ranking system.


The Independent: Shinji Kagawa is a major doubt for Manchester United's Premier League match against Wigan on Saturday after sitting out Japan's World Cup qualifier against Iraq because of back pain.
