Wayne Rooney and Tom Cleverley have been ruled out of England's friendly against Holland on Wednesday by Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ferguson confirmed Rooney will not be available for the match due to a throat infection while also ruling out young midfielder Cleverley.

"They'll be out," he told Sky Sports News after his side's Barclays Premier League win at Norwich. "Wayne has still not recovered from his throat infection, so hopefully we'll get him ready for next Sunday, when we have a big game at White Hart Lane."
