England rest Gerrard against San Marino
England manager Roy Hodgson elected to rest captain Steven Gerrard for the World Cup qualifier away to San Marino on Friday.
The Liverpool midfielder is apparently being saved for Tuesday's trip to Podgorica, where England will tackle current Group H leaders Montenegro.
And amid reports that Theo Walcott has sustained a groin injury that will prevent him from playing in both games, his Arsenal colleague Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was selected in one of the wide midfield berths.
