Chelsea duo Frank Lampard and Ryan Bertrand have withdrawn from the England squad ahead of the World Cup qualifier against San Marino.

Lampard has been nursing a knee injury and will not be risked against the group minnows while Bertrand has a sore throat which has not improved sufficiently.

The Football Association announced this morning that both men will return to the European champions for treatment over the next couple of days before reporting back to the England camp on Sunday for assessment before Tuesday's tricky trip to Poland.
