Carson doubt for England

West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Scott Carson is a doubt for England’s World Cup qualifier against Andorra on Wednesday after missing training.

Carson is sidelined with a thigh strain and with Robert Green and Paul Robinson vying for the number one jersey, is unlikely to be risked against the Group Six whipping boys by head coach Fabio Capello.

Elsewhere, Capello could opt to leave David Beckham, Glen Johnson and Emile Heskey out of his starting line-up.

All three are just one yellow card away from missing the next qualifier against Croatia in September.

Victory over Andorra would leave England just one win away from booking their place in next summer’s finals in South Africa.

Meanwhile, the Football Association are ‘closely monitoring’ a proposed strike on the London Underground which will coincide with the game.

The FA has sold 70,000 tickets for the game but fans could struggle to travel on public transport to the north London venue.

“With regard to the possibility of a Tube Strike, which potentially could begin on Tuesday evening and run until Thursday, The FA and Wembley are closely monitoring the situation and will convey any subsequent implications for England’s World Cup qualifier against Andorra as soon as anything is confirmed by the authorities,” read a statement.
