Wayne Bridge has suffered a calf injury and will miss England's friendly against Ukraine at St James' Park.
Chelsea full-back Bridge played in his club's 1-0 Barclays Premiership victory over Manchester United but has since reported discomfort and will not
join up with the England squad for training before Wednesday's fixture.
England have not called up a direct replacement leaving Newcastle's Kieron Dyer as an option to fill the problem position in left midfield.
