Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier has withdrawn from the England squad for the matches with the United States and Croatia with a groin injury.
The Football Association announced Trippier‘s withdrawal on Tuesday, following assessment of the injury at St George’s Park.
The 28-year-old joins Arsenal’s Danny Welbeck (broken ankle) in withdrawing from Gareth Southgate’s initial 28-man squad.
Trippier has made nine competitive appearances in his 16 caps, scoring his only goal in the World Cup semi-final loss to Croatia.
He was injured in Spurs’ Premier League win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
“He’ll return to his club to continue rehabilitation,” the FA said.
