"However, he further injured it during the game and has therefore been ruled out of this week's England squad."

its Zhirkovs time to shine - he must have been so frustrated sitting on the sidelines unable to play for his new club. I'm not sure how long it will take to reach match fitness but hopefully he can use the Russia games to get up to speed.

AND NOT PICK UP ANOTHER INJURY ...yes it was in caps ...remember arjen robben
