England facing midfield crisis at Euro 2012 as Parker fitness comes into question

England manager Roy Hodgson has already lost two of his original midfield selection due to injury but the Guardian reports there are serious doubts over a third player. Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry have both had to pull out of the Euro 2012 squad and Scott Parker could follow suit.



Lampard withdrew on Thursday due to a thigh strain while an abdomen injury suffered in the friendly victory over Norway did for Barry. Jordan Henderson and Phil Jagielka were called up from the stand-by list in their place but the injuries may not be over for Hodgson, as Parker’s fitness is now being monitored closely. Although the final squad has been named changes due to injury can be made before each country’s first match.


The Guardian adds that England’s coaching staff did not feel Parker was playing at his best against Norway, having missed most of Tottenham Hotspur’s late season run-in, but the one-time England captain is also said to be struggling in training.
