Lampard to miss Holland clash
Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has been ruled out of England's friendly international against Holland on Wednesday due to a throat infection.
Lampard, who scored penalties in the last two Euro 2012 qualifiers against Wales and Switzerland, did not train with the rest of the players on Monday and has been sent back to his club to receive treatment.
The absence of Wilshere with an ankle injury means Lampard will be particularly disappointed by his own absence. It was suggested last month the 33-year-old was on borrowed time with England and that Capello now viewed Wilshere as the central component of his team.
Capello has denied that. Still, with a Euro 2012 double-header against Bulgaria and Wales to come next month, an encounter with the World Cup runners-up would have provided a useful platform from which Lampard could press his own claims.
