Wright-Phillips ruled out

SHAUN Wright-Phillips will miss England's World Cup qualifying double header with Kazakhstan and Andorra next month with a knee injury.

The City winger would almost certainly have been in the squad Fabio Capello is due to announce on Sunday.

However, City boss Mark Hughes has confirmed that Wright-Phillips' plans to play against Bolton at Eastlands on Sunday have been scrapped.

Instead the former Chelsea star will go for a "wash out" of his knee, with the expectation he will be back for the start of next pre-season.
