"He has taken a blow there hasn't he?" said Adams. "We will need to pick him up and get on with it.

"From what I saw at Liverpool, when he used to play at Liverpool and came on, he is a super player. And, for England, he has never let his country down so it was a sad day for Peter.

"It happens. I was left out of the 1990 World Cup and you have to come back if you have anything about you. Hopefully, Peter is a fighter.

"It's just a little bit of a setback for him at the moment but I think he can come again."
