Micah Richards and Darren Bent have pulled out the England squad ahead of the Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales at Wembley.

22452 - Bent and Richards out of England squad

Aston Villa striker striker Bent had not been able to train in the build-up to Friday's win over Bulgaria after picking up a groin problem and could not take part in training on Saturday.

Manchester City defender Richards, who didn't play a part in the 3-0 win over Bulgaria on Friday night, is though to have suffered a hamstring injury in training.

With Manchester United's Chris Smalling expected to retain his role as right-back role at Wembley, and Phil Jagielka able to provide cover, Capello opted to let Richards go straight back to his club.

It leaves England with 23 men remaining from Fabio Capello's original squad, so there will be no replacements called into the party.
