Injured Darren Bent out of England game against France

Darren Bent
Bent has scored eight goals for Sunderland this season

Sunderland striker Darren Bent will miss England's friendly against France on 17 November after a scan showed he has a grade one hamstring injury.

Bent is set to be sidelined for up to three weeks with the problem, suffered before Saturday's win over Stoke.

The 26-year-old, who had not previously missed a league game for Sunderland, scored eight club goals this season.

His first England goal came in September's 3-1 Euro 2012 qualifier victory over Switzerland.

In his absence, Sunderland's record signing Asamoah Gyan scored both goals in the 2-0 win against Stoke.
