On Sunday the scan performed by England was all fine and wonderful (according to England’s medical team).
Today, Steven Gerrard was sent back to Liverpool’s doctors after being ruled out of tomorrow’s England clash against Belarus.
Liverpool’s midfielder had lasted 45 minutes against Ukraine on Saturday before going off injured. He limped out of training early today and is unlikely to be in contention for Liverpool’s weekend fixture against Sunderland away.
Fernando Torres and Dirk Kuyt are also players who appear to have aggravated injuries whilst on international duty.
