England’s attacking options for Tuesday night’s World Cup qualifying match are dwindling. With Danny Welbeck out due to an accumulation of yellow cards, and Wayne Rooney still injured with a gash in his head, Roy Hodgson found out today that striker Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out due to a thigh injury.
James Milner is tipped to replace Danny Welbeck, but a lot of the pressure to score goals for England on Tuesday will rest on the shoulders of Rickie Lambert, who has had two very impressive appearances for England in succession.
