LIVERPOOL - England manager Roy Hodgson watched three of his players potentially join the injured Wayne Rooney on the sidelines during Liverpool's bruising 1-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday.
Rooney sat out the Premier League tussle at Anfield with a head injury and Hodgson also saw Phil Jones, Glen Johnson and match-winner Daniel Sturridge succumb to injuries.
England host Moldova in a World Cup qualifier on Friday before playing away to Ukraine on September 10 and United manager David Moyes said Rooney had "no chance" of taking part after cutting his forehead in training.
"Wayne is bad. The cut is in the middle of his forehead and will take a wee while to heal," Moyes told Sky Sports.
"He turned around and it was a boot by Phil Jones that caught him down the forehead."
