Lescott and Robinson ruled out of England squad

England boss Fabio Capello has called up Joe Hart and Gary Cahill into his squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Ukraine and Belarus following injuries to Paul Robinson and Joleon Lescott.

Blackburn goalkeeper Robinson will return to his club following a hip problem, while Lescott heads back to Manchester City after a calf problem he picked up in the Barclays Premier League draw at Aston Villa last night.

With Ben Foster's omission explained as a chest injury, Hart has been rewarded for a solid start to his loan period at Birmingham.

Centre-back Cahill has produced a series of impressive performances for Bolton and travelled to Kazakhstan in June with the seniors, though he is yet to make his England debut.

Both qualifiers are meaningless for England, who have alreadys secured their passage to the World Cup finals in South Africa next summer. But with opportunities to stake a claim for a place on the plane proving elusive, fringe players like Cahill and Hart will be desperate to make an impression on Capello.
