LONDON (AP)

England goalkeeper Robert Green has been ruled out of England's 2012 European Championship qualifiers against Bulgaria and Wales with a finger injury.

Green reported for duty at England's training base near London on Monday night, but was sent back to his West Ham club for treatment.

Derby's Frankie Fielding, England's goalkeeper at the Under-21 European Championship, has been called up as Green's replacement.

Manchester City's Joe Hart is the first-choice goalkeeper to start in Bulgaria on Friday and against Wales at home four days later.

Hart is the only Premier League goalkeeper in the squad, with Ipswich's David Stockdale, who is on loan from Fulham, also called up by coach Fabio Capello.
