England winger Shaun Wright-Phillips looks set to miss tomorrow's friendly against Slovakia after once again sitting out training this morning.
Wright-Phillips has been unable to train with Fabio Capello's squad all week because of an ankle problem and the Manchester City star is unlikely to recover in time for the Wembley warm-up for Wednesday's 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifier against Ukraine. With Wright-Phillips sidelined, Capello will start with either David Beckham or Tottenham's Aaron Lennon on the right wing.
Beckham will break Bobby Moore's outfield appearance record for England if he wins his 109th cap against the Slovakians. Portsmouth striker Peter Crouch was able to join in with his team-mates at their London Colney base on Friday after missing training earlier in the week because of a calf injury suffered during his club's victory over Everton last Saturday.
