England lose Villa startlet

Aston Villa's Marc Albrighton has been ruled out of England Under-21s' European Championship second-leg play-off clash with Romania. Stuart Pearce's side claimed a 2-1 win in the first leg at Carrow Road on Friday evening, and they travel to Romania for the return fixture on Tuesday. But Albrighton, who came off the bench in the first leg, will not be included in the travelling party after suffering a groin injury. Pearce has opted not to call up a replacement and will instead travel with 19 players to Botosani. If England can beat Romania, they will book a place in the finals to be played in Denmark next summer.
