Gabriel Agbonlahor Injured, John Terry Not Starting For England Vs. Spain

News about the England squad to face Spain is starting to come out of their camp, with the biggest being an injury to Gabriel Agbonlahor. The Aston Villa striker has been in excellent form for his club and many are seeing him as a potential replacement for Wayne Rooney in the Euro 2012 group stages, but he won't get a chance to take that place against Spain. The Three Lions have shipped him back to Villa, as he is unable to train with a hamstring injury. There is no word yet on how serious the injury is.

Additionally, it's come out that Frank Lampard will captain the England side against Spain. Regular captain John Terry will not be starting the match, but is expected to start and captain the Three Lions in their friendly against Sweden. There have been grumblings about Terry losing his captaincy due to the investigations into racist abuse against Anton Ferdinand, but this appears to be Capello rotating and getting looks at as many players as possible, and not any kind of punishment.
