Neville to sit out Estonia trip

England have lost Gary Neville for their 6 June UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier in Estonia after the right-back had "an exploratory operation on his right ankle".

England have lost right-back Gary Neville for their 6 June UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifier in Estonia.

Operation needed
Manchester United FC captain Neville will also miss Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea FC at Wembley. A club statement said the 32-year-old, who has not played since 17 March, "has undergone an exploratory operation on his right ankle". Reports in England suggest left-back Ashley Cole could also sit out the Group E trip to Tallinn as he is due to have minor surgery on Tuesday, although Chelsea are yet to confirm this.
