Nobbs ruled out for England women

England Women's Jordan Nobbs

Nobbs made her international debut for England Women in 2013

Jordan Nobbs is out of England’s Euro 2017 qualifier against Serbia on Tuesday because of a hamstring injury.

The 23-year-old Arsenal player also missed the 7-0 win against the Serbians at Adams Park on Saturday.

England are a point behind Group Seven leaders Belgium with a game in hand.

Victory in Stara Pazova on Tuesday would put Mark Sampson’s side top of the table and secure a runners-up spot at least for next year’s finals in the Netherlands.

The eight group winners and the six best runners-up will join the hosts in an expanded 16-team event.

The other two runners-up will play off in October 2016 for the remaining spot.

England and Belgium are due to meet in the final round of group games on 20 September.
