EURO 2012: INJURY RULES GARETH BARRY OUT OF EUROS

Gareth Barry has been ruled out of Euro 2012 because of a groin injury, the Football Association has confirmed.

The England midfielder, 31, had a scan earlier on Monday, which confirmed he had a tear to the muscle in his lower abdomen.

"I'm very disappointed to lose Gareth," said manager Roy Hodgson. "I'm sure he will still have a part to play with England after the Euros."

Hodgson has called up Everton defender Phil Jagielka to replace Barry.

England's final 23-man squad for Poland and Ukraine must be submitted to Uefa by midday on Tuesday.

Barry, who has played over 50 times for his country, was forced off less than 30 minutes after he was introduced as a half-time substitute against Norway in Oslo on Saturday.

"Not only was he [Barry] a member of my original 23-man squad, but he has featured prominently in the England team over the last few years," Hodgson added.

"I know how much he wanted to be part of the tournament."

Hodgson's decision to call up Jagielka could see Phil Jones utilised in midfield, where he played for Manchester United at times last season.

There are still some concerns over Danny Welbeck and Glen Johnson, who are recovering from ankle and toe injuries respectively, although the pair are expected to report for duty with the rest of the England squad at their Watford base on Tuesday.

An Achilles injury had threatened Scott Parker's involvement at the Euros, but the midfielder proved his fitness by coming through 55 minutes of England's 1-0 win against Norway at the weekend.
