Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck has been withdrawn from England's friendly international with Sweden at Wembley on Tuesday night because of a muscle strain.

Welbeck suffered the setback when appearing as a late substitute during Saturday's 1-0 Wembley success over World Cup winners Spain.

England head coach Fabio Capello intimated on Monday that Welbeck was doubtful for the clash and the 20-year-old has returned to Old Trafford.
