Frank Lampard has emerged as a major doubt for England's Euro 2012 campaign and faces a crucial scan to determine whether he can travel with the squad.
The Chelsea midfielder suffered a thigh injury during a training session with England on Wednesday and there are concerns within the national team camp that the 33-year-old will be unfit for the tournament.
Should the worst fears be realised, England would be left reeling from the second withdrawal of an experienced midfielder this week, after Manchester City's Gareth Barry was forced to pull out with an abdomen injury. Barry was replaced by Everton defender Phil Jagielka, and Lampard's place would go to Liverpool's Jordan Henderson.
