FA chairman Greg Dyke will reportedly miss England's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine tomorrow due to a private business meeting.

Football Association chairman Greg Dyke will reportedly be absent from Tuesday night's World Cup qualifier between England and Ukraine.

Dyke criticised the current state of the English setup, claiming that there are too many foreign players in the Premier League stifling the development of the Three Lions.

The 66-year-old also said that it is unrealistic to expect Roy Hodgson's England team to win the World Cup in Brazil next year.

Following his speech last week, it has emerged that Dyke will not witness England's crucial qualifier against Ukraine tomorrow due to a business meeting that was organised before he was handed the FA role, according to The Express.

The England squad flew to Kiev yesterday.
