Neville ruled out

02 Jun 2006 - 11:34:50

England right-back Gary Neville will miss the friendly international against Jamaica with the hamstring injury that forced him to sit out training on Thursday and Friday.

However, the 31-year-old Manchester United star is expected to be fit enough to play in England's opening World Cup Group B game against Paraguay on June 10.

Assistant manager Steve McClaren said: "It's just a little niggle. Hopefully a few days rest and some work in the gym and he'll be back training on Monday."

Jamie Carragher is expected to deputise for Neville against the Reggae Boyz, after starting Tuesday's 3-1 win against Hungary in a midfield role.

Meanwhile, Jamaica have called Sheffield Wednesday striker Deon Burton in to their squad to replace Watford's Marlon King who was reported to have been sent home for a breach of discipline.
