Rodwell out of Serbia clash

Published Add your comment

Jack Rodwell has been ruled out of England Under-21s' Euro 2013 play-off second leg against Serbia, the Football Association have confirmed.

The Manchester City midfielder was replaced at half-time during Friday's first leg due to a tight hamstring and, after being assessed by the England medical team, it was announced he would be returning to his club.

Rodwell will therefore miss the return leg against Serbia in Krusevac, where England will defend a 1-0 lead as they bid to reach next summer's finals.
