England will hope to build some momentum ahead of Tuesday’s crunch clash with the Ukraine when they face Moldova at Wembley on Friday.
Roy Hodgson’s side currently sit second in the table two points behind leaders Montenegro, with a game in hand, and one point ahead of the Ukraine. Despite being unbeaten in their last six games England are still not sure of securing their place in Rio 2014 and with Poland also in the mix three points behind the former Fulham manager will want to avoid any slip ups against a team ranked 123rd in the world.
Hodgson has suffered a major blow coming into the game however following the news that in-form Liverpool striker has been ruled out with a groin injury sustained in the win over Manchester United.
The former Chelsea star has returned to his club for treatment but he is hoped that he will be fit for the clash with the Ukraine on Tuesday.
A statement on the FA’s website read “Daniel Sturridge has returned to Liverpool for further treatment,” it was reported on the FA’s website.
“The Liverpool forward will return to his club with the intention of joining the England squad again at the weekend and travelling to Ukraine.”
With Wayne Rooney also ruled out following a training ground injury that resulted in a severe cut to his forehead, Danny Welbeck is poised to start up front with Tom Cleverley and possibly Jermaine Defoe set to play off him.
Despite making an indifferent start to the season Joe Hart will continue in goal with Kyle Walker liking to come in for the injured Glenn Johnson and Phil Jones with Ashley Cole, Gary Cahill and Phil Jagielka completing the back five.
Steven Gerrard will lead the side and is set to start in the middle and could line up alongside Jack Wilshere with Theo Walcott set to play on the flank.
Steve Caulker, Andros Townsend, Ross Barkley and Raheem Sterling have been included in the squad, but it remains to be seen whether they will get any game time.
Despite their lowly ranking Ion Caras’ side will head into the game full of confidence after winning one and drawing two of their last three games. An excellent 1-1 home draw to Poland in their last qualifying game was followed by a 2-1 friendly win over Kyrgyzstan before they drew 1-1 at home to Andorra last month in another friendly.
Despite the absence of Rooney and Sturridge England will hope to emulate if not better the 5-0 score-line they achieved in Chisinau in September 2012. On that occasion Frank Lampard (2), Jermain Defoe, James Milner and Leighton Baines all scored to extend their unbeaten run against the Moldovan’s to three games.
England won 4-0 the last time these two teams met at Wembley.
This one gets underway at 20:00 GMT.
