London: Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand deleted his Twitter account on Sunday following his angry reaction to claims he had withdrawn from the England squad with a sore throat.
Bertrand was furious to be criticised when he was actually suffering from a viral infection which prevented him playing any part in Friday's World Cup qualifier with San Marino and earlier on Sunday also ruled him out of Tuesday's clash with Poland in Warsaw.
Questioned about his commitment to England, the left-back last week wrote on Twitter: "Just to clarify. Its not a "sore throat" I'm ill. swollen glands in my neck. And constant headache for 3 days now and freezing cold.
