Theo Walcott and Daniel Sturridge were absent from England’s final training session this morning ahead of tomorrow’s World Cup qualifier against Ukraine at Wembley.

The duo trained yesterday but complained of feeling unwell overnight and did not participate in the session at Arsenal’s London Colney training complex.

It left head coach Roy Hodgson with only 18 players to be put through their paces after the withdrawal yesterday of defender John Terry with an ankle problem.

A further update on the condition of Walcott and Sturridge will be given when Hodgson stages his pre-match press conference later today.
