Published Add your comment

England Under-21's boss Stuart Pearce has seen his squad for their European Championship play-off against Romania hit by a trio of withdrawals.

Manchester City defender Micah Richards, Huddersfield goalkeeper Alex Smithies and Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs have all dropped out of the 23-man party and returned to their clubs due to injury.

Friday's first leg will be played at Norwich's Carrow Road ground with the second leg taking place in Botosani next Tuesday as Pearce's men chase a place at next summer's finals in Denmark.
