Johnson to miss Brazil tie

Liverpool full-back Glen Johnson has withdrawn from the England squad to play Brazil in Qatar this Saturday, the Football Association announced on Tuesday.
Johnson did not train with the rest of the England squad here on Tuesday after playing in Monday's 2-2 Premier League draw against Birmingham City.
He was the only outfield player in Fabio Capello's squad for the Brazil friendly in Doha to play at Anfield, with Reds midfielder Steven Gerrard missing the trip because he is recovering from a groin injury.
During a standard recovery session on Tuesday it was discovered that the 25-year-old Johnson, who played for the full 90 minutes at Anfield, had suffered a slight injury.
Johnson's exit leaves Wes Brown as the only right-back still in the squad, although Shaun Wright-Phillips or James Milner could drop back from midfield.
