England have suffered their second Euro 2012 squad withdrawal as a result of injury, with Gareth Barry the latest to pull out as a result of a lower abdomen tear, according to The FA.com.

The title-winning Manchester City midfielder came on at halftime in place of captain Steven Gerrard in the first match under Roy Hodgson, but he lasted less than half an hour after needing to be substituted himself due to injury.

Boss Roy Hodgson alluded to his worry over Barry with his post-match comments, and following a scan, it has now emerged that the former Aston Villa man will indeed miss the Euro 2012 tournament.

While midfielder Jordan Henderson was on the stand-by list, Hodgson has instead chosen to fill the void left by Barry with Everton defender Phil Jagielka.

John Ruddy, England's third-choice goalkeeper, was also forced to withdraw last week after breaking his finger.

Here are four things that Barry's withdrawal and Jagielka's inclusion means for England.
