Tom Cleverley ruled out of England friendlies
Sunday 26 May 2013
Midfielder Tom Cleverley has pulled out of the England squad for this week's friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.
There have been concerns over the fitness of the Manchester United player since the end of the Premier League season and he has now pulled out with a calf injury. Jack Rodwell, of Manchester City, was called up as cover last week, and will now take his place for the games at Wembley on Wednesday and in Rio de Janeiro next Sunday.
