Colback to miss England friendly through injury
NEWCASTLE UNITED midfielder Jack Colback is out of England’s friendly with Norway at Wembley tomorrow night, but will stay with the camp ahead of Monday’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland.
Colback was called up to the senior squad for the first time last week, but England boss Roy Hodgson revealed the Killingworth-born midfielder will miss out with a slight knock.
“All but one of the squad is available,” Hodgson revealed this afternoon. “Unfortunately, it looks like the game will be a day too early for Jack Colback.”
