A statement on the FA's official website said Carrick is suffering from a hip injury and will not join Roy Hodgson's squad ahead of the match at Wembley. Carrick is the second player to pull out of the squad after Tottenham announced striker Jermain Defoe will miss the fixture with an ankle problem.

The FA added that no replacements have been called up for either player at this time.
