Jack Grealish and Trent Alexander-Arnold out of England squad with injuries

Jack Grealish and Trent Alexander-Arnold have withdrawn from the England squad with injuries.

England face Ukraine in a Euro 2024 qualifier on Saturday, before going to Scotland for a friendly on September 12 – but the Manchester City and Liverpool stars will play no part in the fixtures.

It’s been revealed that both Grealish and Alexander-Arnold reported to St George’s Park on Monday but have pulled out following checks on injuries sustained prior to camp.

Kieran Trippier will report for camp slightly later than everyone else on Wednesday owing to a personal commitment.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate does not plan to make any further call-ups despite the double withdrawal.
