Colback blow for England

SENT HOME ... Jack Colback.
SENT HOME ... Jack Colback.

JACK Colback has been ruled out of tomorrow’s night’s England friendly against Norway – but the midfielder should be fit to face Switzerland.

Colback was called up for the two games by coach Roy Hodgson after impressing for Newcastle United.

But a minor injury means the former Sunderland man won’t be available for the Norway friendly at Wembley.

Hodgson said: “All but one of the squad is available.

“Unfortunately, it looks like the game will be a day too early for Jack Colback.”

Colback will stay with England’s squad, and the 24-year-old could be fit for Monday night’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland in Basel.
