Walker out of England squad

Tottenham defender Kyle Walker has been ruled out of England's friendly double-header against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.

• Maher: Rivalry of ages

After being assessed by England medical staff the Football Association have confirmed that, Walker, 22, has returned to his club with no replacement call-up being made.

The player was injured during Tottenham's goalless post-season friendly against the Jamaica national team last Thursday.

Walker's injury leaves Liverpool's Glen Johnson as the only orthodox right back in Roy Hodgson's squad although Phil Jagielka and Phil Jones both have experience of playing in the role.

However, there was some better news with Manchester United's Danny Welbeck believed to be fine after he missed Monday morning's training session at St George's Park.

Welbeck took part in a gym session and is believed to be fit enough to remain with the squad for the two games.

The rest of Roy Hodgson's 21-man squad took part in the training session at St George's Park, including Manchester City's Joe Hart, Joleon Lescott, James Milner and Chelsea's Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard who have returned from their clubs' end-of-season tour of the United States.

Between 100 and 200 Three Lions' fans affected by the decision to delay England's World Cup qualifier against Poland in October watched the training session after being invited by the FA.

The game was put back a day due to severe rainfall meaning supporters with pre-existing travel plans missed out.

England face the Republic of Ireland at Wembley on Wednesday evening before travelling to Rio de Janeiro to face Brazil on Sunday.
