England's Dawson to Miss Euro Qualifier in Switzerland With Knee Injury

Michael Dawson will miss England’s European Championship qualifier in Switzerland with a knee injury, the Football Association said on its website.

The defender was carried off the field on a stretcher during last night’s 4-0 win over Bulgaria in the opening Euro 2012 qualifier at Wembley Stadium. He underwent a scan this morning before and was released back to his club Tottenham, the F.A. said without disclosing the extent of the injury.

England will not call in a replacement for the game in Switzerland in three days, the F.A. said.
