Rio Ferdinand will travel to Barcelona with the England squad for Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Andorra, despite suffering from a stiff neck, reports BBC.

The Manchester United defender missed training for a second day on Thursday and will be reassessed on Friday.
 
However, midfielder Frank Lampard seems certain to be fit to start the match, having shaken off a dead leg.
 
And Joe Cole, the only other player to miss the session, is expected to shake off a minor calf injury to play.
 
England are looking to get their qualification campaign off to a winning start ahead of Wednesday's key encounter with Croatia.
 
John Terry (bug), Wes Brown and Ashley Cole (both knee) should also be fit after they returned to training having previously been rested as a precaution.
 
Should Ferdinand not shake off his back problem, Joleon Lescott and Matthew Upson will be ready to step in, while Brown is also capable of playing in central defence.
 
Meanwhile, with midfielder Steven Gerrard ruled out because of a groin operation, Fulham's Jimmy Bullard is pushing to make his debut.
 
The 29-year-old received his first call-up from coach Fabio Capello, who takes charge of his first competitive England game against the part-timers from Andorra at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona.
 
The last time England last played Andorra at the Olympic Stadium, a goalless first half led to a torrent of verbal abuse being directed at then England boss Steve McClaren.
