Wright-Phillips out of qualifiers

Published Add your comment

Shaun Wright-Phillips will miss England's World Cup qualifying double header with Kazakhstan and Andorra next month with a knee injury.

The Manchester City winger, who would almost certainly have been in the squad Fabio Capello is due to announce on Sunday, will not play against Bolton at Eastlands on Sunday.

"Shaun trained earlier this week but he got a reaction," said the City boss.

Instead the former Chelsea star will go for a "wash out" of his knee, with the expectation he will be back for the start of next pre-season.
