Torres goes Dutch but Gerrard out

Gerrard and defender Daniel Agger are the two notable absentees

from Roy Hodgson’s 20-man squad for the clash at the

24,500-capacity Stadion Galgenwaard. Agger’s absence leaves Hodgson

with a major selection headache at left-back, with Paul Konchesky

and Fabio Aurelio already missing through injury. Torres, who is

struggling to find his top form, has been included in the squad

after being rested for the opening Group K win over Steaua

Bucharest. Dirk Kuyt is also included against his former club after

coming through Saturday’s draw with Sunderland unscathed following

a shoulder problem.
