Manchester City defender Wayne Bridge has ruled himself out of selection for Fabio Capello's England squad.
The left-back released a short statement on Thursday morning claiming his presence within the national squad was potentially "divisive" and that he did not wish to be selected.
It leaves Capello without both his first-choice left-backs for Wednesday's friendly with Egypt.
