Chelsea and England footballers Frank Lampard, Ashley Cole and Gary Cahill will miss this Saturday’s exhibition game between Chelsea and Manchester City at Yankee Stadium in order to return to London to meet up with the England squad for their upcoming friendlies against Ireland and Brazil.

However, Lampard, Cole and Cahill will be available for Thursday’s match in St Louis between Chelsea and Manchester City.

The trio will train today and are expected to be involved in tomorrow’s match in St Louis before flying back to England on Friday to meet up with the England national team under manager Roy Hodgson.

Last weekend, England manager Roy Hodgson criticized Chelsea, Manchester City and Spurs for their post-season tours that would impact England’s friendlies.
