Bent is England's only fully fit striker in Euro qualifier with Switzerland

June 3, 2011 - London

Darren Bent is England's only fully fit striker for tomorrow's Euro qualifier with Switzerland.

Peter Crouch has back trouble while Bobby Zamora is still struggling with a hip injury he picked up at the end of the season with Fulham.

Both trained all this week but are playing through the pain barrier.

To top it all, coach Fabio Capello has decided not to call in a replacement for injured Jermain Defoe, the Sun reports.

With Manchester United's Wayne Rooney suspended, Bent will lead the line.

But if the Aston Villa star suffers an injury, then Capello's attacking options will be severely limited.
