A statement from the FA read: “Phil Jones has been ruled out of England’s final match of 2013 against Germany on Tuesday evening.

“The Manchester United defender picked up his injury during England’s defeat to Chile on Friday evening, and following a scan today (Saturday) he has returned to his club.”
