Antonio ruled out of England games

West Ham United striker Michail Antonio has been forced to pull out of the England squad for the games against Germany and Lithuania.

The former Sheffield Wednesday star picked up a hamstring injury in Saturday's 3-2 home defeat to Leicester City and will not feature in the friendly against Germany on Wednesday or this weekend's World Cup qualifier with Lithuania.

Meanwhile, Hammers boss Slaven Bilic is desperate for his players to cut out the individual errors that were once again in evidence against the Foxes.

He said: "The first goal, we were behind [the ball], we had enough players, it's more a cross than a shot. It's a mistake from us, and then we're talking about two set-pieces that we have to do better from.

"They did a trick on the first one, of course we all expect them to put the ball straight in from that position, but they decided to make a combination.

"We tried to block it, but they made a cross. Yes, it's a mistake by our player, but mistakes happen.

"It's very hard to defend a situation when it's 2-0 after seven minutes. No problem, that's my job. We are preparing them to be focused, but at set-pieces it's enough for one player to lose their man, or they make a block, or you give credit to that player who is better in the air at that moment than your player."

West Ham, 9/1 to finish in the top half of the Premier League table, are available at 23/10 to beat Hull City in their next match on 1st April.
