Ashton Out of Friendly
Dean Ashton will unfortunately not make his debut for England tomorrow as he has suffered an ankle injury in training with the national squad. New England manager McClaren said,
"It's disappointing when a young player is given his chance and gets injured. Dean is having a scan at the hospital and we're awaiting the outcome."
There must be serious doubts whether Ashton can recover in time for West Ham's opnening game of the season against the Addicks on Saturday.
