England midfield player Michael Carrick will miss the UEFA European Under-21 Championship.
Carrick out, Greening in
Midfield player Carrick has been told to rest after a scan yesterday revealed a groin problem. His withdrawal means a late call-up for Jonathan Greening of Middlesbrough FC, who flew to Switzerland today to join the group.
England's first match is against the hosts in Zürich on Friday. Coach David Platt suffered another blow yesterday when Tottenham Hotspur FC defender Ledley King dropped out with an ankle injury.
