Soccer: England’s Sturridge ruled out of Moldova game

LONDON: England striker Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out of Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Moldova, the FA said on its website on Thursday.

The in-form forward has returned to his club Liverpool for treatment on a thigh injury but could be fit to play in England’s game away in Ukraine on Tuesday.

England manager Roy Hodgson was already without striker Wayne Rooney, who has a head injury, for both games and 22-year-old Danny Welbeck looks set to lead the attack against Moldova at Wembley.

England are second in qualifying Group H, two points behind Montenegro and one ahead of Ukraine
