No Swiss role for Dawson

Michael Dawson has returned to Tottenham after being ruled out of England's Euro 2012 qualifier in Switzerland on Tuesday.

The defender was carried off with a serious-looking knee injury during the second half of Friday night's 4-0 win over Bulgaria. Coach Fabio Capello had already expressed his concern for Dawson and after an initial examination on Saturday morning, the 26-year-old returned to White Hart Lane.

"Following a scan on his knee on Saturday morning, Michael Dawson will miss England's Euro 2012 qualifier with Switzerland on Tuesday," read a statement released by the Football Association. "There will be no further call-ups."

The statement continued: "England and Tottenham Hotspur medical staff were in contact on Saturday morning and Dawson has now returned to his club for further treatment."
