Gareth Barry to have groin scan
Gareth Barry leaves the field injured in Oslo
LONDON, England ● England midfielder Gareth Barry will have a scan on the groin injury he suffered in the win over Norway on Monday.
Barry lasted less than half an hour last night following his introduction as a half-time substitute before indicating he had a problem.
Manager Roy Hodgson claimed the Football Association would not wait to discover the extent of Barry’s injury and the player was likely to have a scan today.
However, the FA have now said it will not be done until tomorrow, which is shaping up to be a significant day in England’s Euro 2012 campaign.
It is also anticipated Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck and Liverpool defender Glen Johnson will report to have their respective ankle and toe injuries assessed by the England medical team.
Hodgson has to confirm his 23-man squad to UEFA by midday on Tuesday, after which he will not be allowed to make any changes.
