Kyle Walker rules himself out of the England under-21s' Euro qualifier against Norway on Monday.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker has ruled himself out of the England under-21s' Euro qualifier against Norway on Monday because his girlfriend is expected to give birth within the next week.

The 21-year-old has added to manager Stuart Pearce's selection problems after it was revealed that Sir Alex Ferguson had blocked Danny Welbeck's call-up to the squad.

Despite Walker's withdrawl, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp had agreed to let him play in Oslo.

England are currently top of Group Eight on goal difference, ahead of Norway.
