Grealish & Alexander-Arnold Withdraw from England Squad Due to Injuries
Manchester City's star forward, Jack Grealish, and Liverpool's talented midfielder, Trent Alexander-Arnold, have been forced to withdraw from England's September fixtures due to injuries, as confirmed by the Football Association on Monday.
Both players had initially joined the England squad at the national football centre, St. George's Park. However, following thorough injury assessments related to pre-existing injuries they had sustained before the camp, it became evident that they would not be fit to participate.
The Football Association has further announced that manager Gareth Southgate will not be making any additional additions to the squad he had previously unveiled last Thursday.
England is scheduled to face Ukraine in Wroclaw, Poland, on the upcoming Saturday, in a crucial Euro 2024 qualifier. Subsequently, they will journey to Glasgow to engage in a friendly match against Scotland three days later.
As it stands, England leads Group C with an impressive 12 points earned from four games, maintaining a six-point advantage over second-placed Ukraine in the group standings.
