Jadon Sancho will not be available for England’s upcoming World Cup qualifier and the striker has returned to Manchester United after a slight blow during a training session.
The 21-year-old picked up the injury in training earlier this week and was excluded in England’s 4-0 win over Hungary in Budapest.
Sancho is expected to recover in time for Manchester United’s game with Newcastle United after the September 11 international break.
Gareth Southgate will have a pool of 23 players to choose from on Sunday at Wembley against Andorra and three days later against Poland in Warsaw.
So far, Sancho has made 22 international appearances and three goals for England, but played a small role at Euro 2020 and missed a penalty in the Wembley final on penalties against Italy.
He has played in all three of United’s Premier League games so far this season, making one start and two substitute appearances after joining Borussia Dortmund for £ 73m this summer.
In August, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side drew a 5-1 win over Leeds in their first game of the season, drew 1-1 at Southampton and then beat Wolves 1-0 at Molineux.
Meanwhile, Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin had to retire from the English squad due to a broken toe and a hamstring before beating Hungary, and the striker continues to receive treatment at his club.
Tyrone Mings was on Southgate’s original squad for World Cup qualifiers in September but had undoubtedly missed Aston Villa’s 1-1 draw with Brentford due to a broken rib. Against Hungary, however, the defender was called on the bench.
England lead their qualifying group by five points after winning all four games so far.
