11:57 am on 1 June 2012

England's Frank Lampard has been ruled out of this month's Euro 2012 football tournament with a thigh injury suffered in training.

The Football Association confirmed the news after the 33-year-old midfielder was examined by medical staff after a scan.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson will be called into the squad, subject to agreement from Uefa's medical team.

Manager Roy Hodgson says it's a huge blow for the team, especially coming after the loss of another senior player in Gareth Barry.

The tournament starts next week.
