London: England striker Daniel Sturridge has been ruled out of his side's crucial World Cup qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday, the Football Association (FA) said Saturday.

Sturridge was sidelined for Friday's 4-0 win over Moldova at Wembley after aggravating a thigh injury in Liverpool's victory against Manchester United last weekend.

The 24-year-old returned to Liverpool for treatment after initially joining up with England and it had been hoped he would recover sufficiently to meet Roy Hodgson's squad in time for the trip to Kiev.
