Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor is to undergo a minor groin operation on Monday and is expected to be out of action for at least two weeks.
The 23-year-old will, therefore, be unavailable for England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro on October 12.
Manager Gerard Houllier confirmed the news on Friday ahead of Villa's Barclays Premier League clash at Tottenham Saturday.
