The Three Lions prepare for their World Cup qualifier against Ukraine next week when Slovakia head to Wembley on Saturday for a friendly.

Ledley King has pulled out of the England squad for the forthcoming fixtures against Slovakia and Ukraine and returned to Tottenham Hotspur to continue treatment on his injured knee.

King is only able to play one game a week for the north London outfit because of the injury and it came as something of a surprise to see him called up by England coach Fabio Capello.

“Ledley King has returned to Spurs Lodge to continue his rehabilitation over the course of the international break, following discussions and assessments overnight by the medical staff of both the club and the England national team,” an FA statement revealed.

“It has been agreed by both parties that the best interests of the player are served by continuing his individual training programme at the club and he will play no further part in England’s preparations or participate in the friendly against Slovakia or the World Cup qualifier against Ukraine.”
