Gerrard and Lampard out of friendly

Published Add your comment

Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard have both pulled out of England's friendly with Germany in Berlin on Wednesday.

Gerrard reported for duty on Sunday despite the Liverpool website stating he would be unavailable after picking up a rib injury at Bolton on Saturday. But a check by the FA's medical staff has proved that diagnosis to be correct and Gerrard has returned to the north-west.

Gerrard's midfield partner Lampard also misses out after scans on a rib injury he picked up at West Brom on Saturday revealed he would not be fit enough to be involved at the Olympic Stadium.
