Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have both been forced to withdraw from the England squad ahead of Wednesday’s friendly with Germany.

Liverpool stated on Sunday that Gerrard would be unavailable after picking up a groin injury at Bolton the day before.

England asked Gerrard to report for duty but he has now had to officially pull out following a check by the Football Association’s medical staff.

Scott Parker of West Ham and Fulham’s Jimmy Bullard have been called up to replace Gerrard and Lampard.

The likes of Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Joe Cole are also absent through injury, but captain John Terry has been declared fit following a foot problem.As reported from Skynews
