England's Lampard out for Euro 2012
LONDON (AP) -- The Football Association says England midfielder Frank Lampard will miss the European Championship because of a thigh injury.
Lampard was hurt during a training session Thursday.
England manager Roy Hodgson says "it's a huge blow for the team," especially following the loss of Gareth Barry Monday because of a stomach injury. Hodgson also lost backup goalkeeper John Ruddy due to a broken finger.
Barry was replaced by defender Phil Jagielka. Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson has taken Lampard's spot on the roster.
England's first match is against France on June 11. It will also plays Ukraine and Sweden in Group D.
