England trio out of Italy friendly

England’s Joe Hart, Daniel Sturridge and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have withdrawn from the squad that will face Italy on Wednesday night due to injury.

Manager Roy Hodgson has called up just Joleon Lescott as a replacement, meaning that the English squad is two players light for the fixture.
