Scott Parker faces the prospect of missing out on Euro 2012 after the Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder failed to overcome an Achilles injury, the Guardian has reported.

Parker was named England captain by caretaker manager Stuart Pearce for the national team’s match against the Netherlands and is described by the Guardian as an “integral” part of the Three Lions’ midfield. However, new England manager Roy Hodgson may have to go without Parker after Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp revealed that the player was a doubt for Spurs’ last Premier League game of the season against Fulham and that even if Parker was involved, he would need treatment on his injury immediately after the match.

Redknapp said: “[Parker] has not been fit for the last couple of weeks. He is not going to train and we are going to see…whether he could be available for the weekend. After Sunday he will have some injections and see if that can clear it up…it will need around 10 days rest…We are hoping it will be okay.”

The Guardian postulates that if Parker is not fit enough to be included in Hodgson’s Euro 2012 squad then the role of midfield destroyer is likely to go to Gareth Barry of Manchester City. Parker himself, the newspaper points out, stepped in for Jack Wilshere, who missed the entire season with an ankle injury having impressed in his brief international career thus far.
