LONDON (AP)

Steven Gerrard and Kyle Walker are the latest players to be ruled out of England's friendly against Chile on Friday because of injury.

Frank Lampard will captain the team at Wembley Stadium in the absence of fellow midfielder Gerrard, who has a hip problem.

Walker has an unspecified injury so Glen Johnson is likely to start at right back.

Michael Carrick and Danny Welbeck withdrew from the games against Chile and Germany on Tuesday with Achilles and knee injuries respectively. Striker Daniel Sturridge is also a doubt after picking up a foot injury in Liverpool's 4-0 home win over Fulham on Saturday.
