Rooney and Cleverley Absent from the Three Lions

Norwich - Manchester United duo Wayne Rooney and Tom Cleverley certainly absent when England hosted the Netherlands in a friendly match at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday, February 29th the day after tomorrow.
Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed Rooney will be absent due to a throat infection, while Cleverley back injury against Ajax in the middle of last week's Europa League. "They're absent," said Ferguson after United's 2-1 win over Norwich quoted as saying by Sky Sports on Monday (2/27/2012).
"Wayne is still not recovered from his throat infection, so hopefully we can wear them next week when we were diving a big party at White Hart Lane," said Ferguson.
This news is a blow to the Three Lions caretaker Stuart Pearce who also seems to have lost Darren Bent forced because of an ankle injury against Wigan at Aston Villa. Despite losing his attackers, so far no word or indication Pearce will call a substitute.
In the game against Norwich in the Canaries Road, Rooney and Ferguson Cleverley did not play and declare they will not recover in the middle of a friendly match this week. Thus, Cleverley was forced to delay any further ambition to make his debut with the English national team.
