Gareth Barry is poised to start back-to-back games for England for the first time in nearly seven years after the withdrawal from the squad of Owen Hargreaves and Frank Lampard ahead of the crunch European Championship qualifier with Russia.

Hargreaves has returned to Manchester United after having his thigh injury assessed by the England medical team on Monday when he also underwent a scan and a fitness test.

Lampard only ever had an outside chance of recovering from his thigh setback and he has gone back to Chelsea.
