And STEVIE G IS RULED OUT OF BELARUS GAME.
what will BE the point of watching?
The midfielder sustained the problem in Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Ukraine and after limping out of training on Tuesday will now return to Liverpool.
Gerrard joins striker Wayne Rooney, who has a calf injury, on the sidelines.
Goalkeeper David James faces a late fitness assessment after sitting out the session with a knee problem.
Gerrard's absence will no doubt cause further headaches for the Italian, who is already missing the likes of Rooney, Jermain Defoe, Joe Cole and Owen Hargreaves.
But one man who will continue in the side is Rio Ferdinand, despite being widely criticised for his performance in Dnipropetrovsk.
Fit-again Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster, meanwhile, has been called up as further cover for Green, having been omitted from the initial squad because of bruising to his ribs.
OBVS. AND GERRARD WILL PLAY FOR LIVERPOOL ANYWAY. BET YOU £10000.
AND ON ANOTHER NOTE.
LOL X 1000000000 @ BALLACK. XD
