Injury News: Gareth Barry Out of Euro 2012

England midfielder Gareth Barry will miss Euro 2012 after suffering an abdominal injury in England’s friendly against Norway on Saturday.

Defender Phil Jagielka will take his place on the roster.

With Barry out, this means that Scott Parker and Frank Lampard will likely start in the defensive midfield positions in England’s 4-2-3-1 formation.

Jagielka was one of the stand-by reserves, but started on Saturday with the Chelsea players absent. England manager Roy Hodgson picked the defender over stand-by midfielders Jordan Henderson and Adam Johnson.
