6:32 am on 14 October 2009

Steven Gerrard has been ruled out of England's final World Cup football qualifier, against Belarus tomorrow morning at Wembley.

The Liverpool captain injured his groin during last weekend's loss to Ukraine.

Goalkeeper David James is also in doubt for the match with a knee problem.

England have already qualified for next year's World Cup finals in South Africa.
