Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jack Grealish withdraw from England squad due to injury concerns

Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jack Grealish have withdrawn from the England squad with injuries.

Gareth Southgate’s side have two fixtures in the international break, starting with a Euro 2024 against Ukraine in Poland on Saturday evening before they face Scotland in Glasgow in a friendly three days later.

The duo joined up with the England squad on Monday, but Alexander-Arnold is nursing a hamstring issue and Grealish has a thigh problem, and they will play no part for the Three Lions in the upcoming games.

“The pair reported to St. George’s Park on Monday but have since withdrawn from the Three Lions squad following checks on injuries sustained prior to camp,” a statement said.

“All other players are due as planned apart from Kieran Trippier who will arrive on Wednesday owing to a personal commitment.”

Alexander-Arnold picked up his hamstring injury in Liverpool’s win over Aston Villa on Sunday, with the defender forced off with 20 minutes remaining at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp was uncertain about the severity of the issue when asked after the match.

“It would have been cool if Trent hadn’t had felt his hamstring,” Klopp said. “We will know more after a scan. Let’s hope it’s not serious.”

Grealish missed out on the squad completely as Manchester City beat Fulham, with that thigh complaint now ruling him out of international duty too.
