Only a slight strain, should be fine for the big kick-off!
Steven Gerrard has pulled out of the England squad for tomorrow night’s friendly with Holland in Amsterdam.
The Liverpool skipper trained yesterday but felt a slight soreness in his groin and has withdrawn as a precaution.
The remainder of Fabio Capello’s squad was able to make the short flight to the Netherlands, where they will be put through their paces at the Amsterdam Arena tonight. (Daily Post)
Now I am usually on the country side of the whole club versus international debate but this particular friendly is a totally pointless exercise and even more so given that England have all but qualified for the World Cup and should therefore only use such encounters for up and coming players to get a run out and an international cap. Expect many other players to pull out today!
