Jack Grealish and Trent Alexander-Arnold leave from the England squad after inquiries

Gareth Southgate’s team is set to play two matches during the international break. Their first fixture is a Euro 2024 match against Ukraine in Poland on Saturday evening, followed by a friendly against Scotland in Glasgow three days later. However, two key players, Alexander-Arnold and Grealish, who joined the England squad on Monday, will not be able to participate due to injuries.

Both players have been dealing with injuries prior to joining the Three Lions squad. Alexander-Arnold has a hamstring issue, while Grealish is nursing a thigh problem. As a result, they have withdrawn from the squad for the upcoming matches.

According to an official statement, “The pair reported to St. George’s Park on Monday but have since withdrawn from the Three Lions squad following checks on injuries sustained prior to camp.” The statement also mentioned that all other players are expected to join as planned, except for Kieran Trippier, who will arrive on Wednesday due to a personal commitment.

Alexander-Arnold sustained his hamstring injury during Liverpool’s match against Aston Villa on Sunday, where he had to be substituted with 20 minutes remaining. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, expressed uncertainty about the severity of the injury, stating that they would know more after a scan.

Grealish, on the other hand, was already dealing with a thigh complaint that prevented him from being included in the squad for Manchester City’s match against Fulham. Unfortunately, this injury will also keep him out of international duty.
