Villa star Bent out of tonight's England match, Tottenham's Defoe likely replacement

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent has been ruled out of England's clash with Bulgaria in Sofia tonight.

The 27-year old has succumbed to a groin strain and will miss the Group G Euro2012 qualifier against the Bulgarians at the Stadion Vasil Levski.

Tottenham's Jermain Defoe has been touted as a possible replacement but there is also plenty of hope that in-form Manchester United ace Ashley Young will take his place in the starting line-up with teammate Wayne Rooney and Andy Carroll playing up front.
