Jenkinson pulls out of England u-21s


JenkCarl Jenkinson has has been forced to pull out of the England Under-21s squad to face Croatia this week following assessment on a hamstring injury.

The West Ham United loanee Arsenal featured for the Hammers in their win over QPR on Sunday but has been unable to train since joining the England squad and is now officially unavailable.

Head coach said:”Jenks has had to go home, as he hasn’t trained with us all week after feeling his hamstring after the game on Sunday.

“We haven’t made sufficient progress with that, so to be fair to him and the club it’s better that he goes back and they will be able to pick it up.”

    A possible explanation for his erratic display against QPR – time after time he got into a position where you would expect him to have gone on the outside he stopped and turned inside.

    If he’s worried about his hamstring this could explain it – he seems to have a problem that is holding him back.

    I’m not sure but did he have an injury history at Arsenal? I know he never seemed to establish himself and Wenger let him go when Arsenal were having a crisis at right-back!
