Wright-Phillips ruled out of England qualifiers
Friday 22 May 2009
Winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has been ruled out of England's World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Andorra next month by a knee injury.
The pacy winger has not played for his club Manchester City since the Uefa Cup defeat by Hamburg on 9 April and will need an operation to solve the problem.
City manager Mark Hughes said "Shaun trained earlier this week but he got a reaction." Hughes expects the winger to be ready for preseason training.
England are away to Kazakhstan on 6 June, before hosting Andorra four days later at Wembley. Fabio Capello's side are top of Group 6, with a maximum 15 points from five games.
