Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has confirmed Darren Bent is "certain" to miss England's midweek friendly with Holland after injuring his ankle during the goalless draw at Wigan.

Bent landed awkwardly after a challenge from Antolin Alcaraz during the second half at the DW Stadium. He left the stadium in a protective boot and McLeish admitted it did not look good.

"He was in agony in the dressing room," said the Scot. "He is certainly out of the England squad."
