Ivory Coast international Wilfried Zaha will miss Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea due to injury.
The talismanic Crystal Palace attacker was a surprise omission from the matchday squad on Saturday after he failed to recover from an unreported hamstring strain which he suffered during the defeat at Stamford Bridge six days earlier. Roy Hodgson decided against disclosure during Thursday’s press conference, as Zaha was still hopeful of playing. "Nothing special to report at the moment," he said. "We haven't recovered any of the injured players, but haven't lost any [new ones] either." However, Zaha missed the Tottenham clash with most speculating that a late training ground injury was the cause for his absence, although Hodgson confirmed later that his involvement was always in the balance. "He picked up a hamstring injury against Chelsea and it was always extremely unlikely he would recover in time, basically it is trying to get him fit for Manchester United [in game week 13]."
