Bent was not available for England's 3-0 win over Bulgaria because of injury

Darren Bent and Micah Richards have been ruled out of England's Euro 2012 qualifier against Wales on Tuesday because of injuries.

Bent had not been able to train in the build-up to Friday's win over Bulgaria after picking up a groin problem.

Manchester City defender Richards is believed to have a hamstring problem.

England manager Fabio Capello has decided against calling up any replacements so close to Tuesday's match at Wembley.

Both players have returned to their clubs for treatment on their injuries.
