Hull crisis deepens with Bruce exit

Hull City

Duo pull out of England squad

England boss Roy Hodgson will not be able to call on Manchester City's Joe Hart or Chelsea's Daniel Sturridge for this week's friendly with Italy, after both pulled out of the squad with injuries.

Hart and Sturridge have both been ruled out of the encounter in Berne with back and toe injuries respectively, with Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland inching closer to making a remarkable England debut.

Indeed, manager Roy Hodgson has taken the unusual decision not to call-up any replacements, meaning Butland and Norwich's John Ruddy are the only two keepers left in his squad.

Neither man has ever won a senior cap, however the Norwich keeper is favourite to start after he was ruled out of the Euro 2012 tournament after breaking a finger on his first day of training.

Butland, 19, has so far only had experience at senior level in League Two for Cheltenham last season, although he did play for Great Britain during their Olympic campaign.
