As a major setback for England ahead of the Euro Cup 2012, veteran midfielder Frank Lampard has been ruled out of the tournament due to injury.

As per reports, a scan confirmed his thigh injury would rule him out of the tournament.

Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has been called into the squad as a replacement for Lampard.

The news is a hammer blow for England coach Roy Hodgson, who has already lost keeper John Ruddy and midfielder Gareth Barry from his original 23-member-squad.
