Chelsea pair sent home from England U19 duty

Chelsea striker Scott Sinclair has been sent home from England U19 duty after breaking curfew.

Sinclair, Blues team-mate Ryan Bertrand - who is currently on loan at Oldham - and Andy Carroll, a Newcastle player presently on a short stint at Preston, have all returned to their clubs after being ordered out on England's training base in Leeds.

While the Football Association are anxious to stress the trio's misdemeanour did not go beyond breaking coach Brian Eastick's curfew, the breach of conduct was enough to see them sent home ahead of Sunday's encounter with Romania in Scunthorpe, when victory will see England in the elite European Championship qualifying stage.

"I have found it necessary to send three players home for breaking our code of conduct," said Eastick.

"All the appropriate people have been informed and there will be no further comment at this time."
