Delfouneso out of Belgium clash

Aston Villa striker Delfouneso returned to his club following

Thursday night’s 5-0 thrashing of Iceland, which saw him pick up a

hamstring injury. The 20-year-old was withdrawn after just 11

minutes in Colchester and will not travel to Mons on Sunday.

Blackburn midfielder Jason Lowe and Tottenham defender Adam Smith,

who is on loan at MK Dons, look set to shake off respective

hamstring and ankle injuries. The squad is also expected to be

bolstered by the return of Liverpool’s Jon Flanagan and Everton’s

Ross Barkley, who were drafted into the under-19s party for

Thursday night’s clash with Denmark. England Under-21s will be

looking to maintain their 100% Group Eight record in Belgium on

Monday having cruised to four wins out of four.
