Parker may miss Euro 2012

England manager Roy Hodgson has revealed Scott Parker could miss out on Euro 2012.

Parker, who captained England under Stuart Pearce's brief stewardship, is suffering with an Achilles tendon injury and it is not yet certain he will recover in time for the tournament. Liverpool's Jordan Henderson is on standby should he miss out.

"Scott's had an injection which will probably take a week for us to see if it's been successful or not," Hodgson said. "He could still miss out, although from what I'm hearing, it won't be a problem. He's very confident."

He added: "We've got until the 29 May to finalise the squad and I may still have a call to make on that one if it's looking dubious, if there is a doubt. I'll have that call to make.

"Do I take the risk and go with a doubt and hope for the best or do I say, 'I'm sorry, I've selected you in my 23 players, but now I have to remove you'? But I'm very confident that won't happen. I'm very optimistic. The doctor spoke to Scott Parker and Spurs on Wednesday, so I'm confident - but I can't give a guarantee."

There had been raised eyebrows that Michael Carrick was not in the 23-man squad or the standby list, but Hodgson explained that the Manchester United midfielder would only be willing to go to the tournament if he were taken as a first-choice.

"Michael had made it clear in the past he didn't want to be involved [as a fringe player]," Hodgson said. "As it is, I'd have to be convinced he was better than the four I've selected, and that he'd be happy to come out of retirement, if he was to be considered."
