Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon, who missed his team's 1-0 home defeat by Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday, has withdrawn from England's squad for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.

Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon, who missed his team's 1-0 home defeat by Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday, has withdrawn from England's squad for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said Lennon had a damaged groin and hamstring injury and he decided against playing him against Fulham as he risked making the problem worse.

Spurs centre-back Michael Dawson was taken off at halftime with a hamstring injury but will join up with the national squad on Monday to be assessed by the England medical team.
