King expected miss next England match
Ledley King is expected to miss England’s next World Cup match
after injuring his groin in the 1-1 draw against the United
England coach Fabio Capello said King was replaced by Jamie
Carragher after halftime in Saturday’s Group C opener because he
hurt an abductor muscle.
He gave no further details but said he expected King, whose
career at Tottenham has been dogged by chronic knee problems, to be
fit again only in time for England’s last group game against
Slovenia on June 23.
England’s next match is Algeria on Friday in Cape Town.
