Frank Lampard emerges as a doubt for England's vital Euro 2008 qualifiers against Israel and Russia.

Lampard, 29, has a thigh injury and will miss Chelsea's Premier League game against Aston Villa on Sunday.

"We can confirm Frank Lampard was injured in training on Friday," read a Chelsea statement.

"A scan has shown he has a tear in his left thigh. It is too early to say how long it will keep him from playing."

The club added: "The injury is on the same leg as the toe he broke earlier this season."
