Stones ruled out of England qualifiers as Rooney misses training

The Everton defender suffered a knee injury recently and missed Sunday's Merseyside derby, while Wayne Rooney, Danny Ings and Jonjo Shelvey missed training on Tuesday

John Stones has been ruled out of England's Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania through injury.

The centre-back sat out Sunday's Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool due to a knee injury and has been sent back to the Toffees to receive treatment.

Tottenham's Kyle Walker has been added to Roy Hogson's squad to take the 21-year-old's place.

Meanwhile, three other members of England's 24-man selection sat out training at St George's Park on Tuesday, with captain Wayne Rooney, Danny Ings and Jonjo Shelvey nursing knocks.

With question marks over the trio, Walker's Tottenham teammate Andros Townsend has also been handed a late call up.

The Three Lions face Estonia at Wembley on Friday before taking on Lithuania on Monday, having already secured top spot in Group E.
