The Liverpool right-back joins Fabian Delph, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Luke Shaw on the list of players to have withdrawn from this squad of players for the upcoming European qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Montenegro.

Trent Alexander-Arnold became the latest withdrawal from Gareth Southgate's England squad last night after failing to recover from a back injury.

The 20-year-old has returned to Liverpool to continue treatment on the injury with a view to featuring for the Premier League leaders after the global break.

Alexander-Arnold has since played against Bayern Munich and Fulham, but was feeling his back issue again when he reported for global duty on Monday.

The defender had been nursing the injury and despite making progress, it is unlikely he will be fit for Friday's home match against the Czech Republic or Monday's game in Montenegro, the FA said.

"The 20-year-old will now continue his rehabilitation at his club".

England will now continue with Kieran Trippier and Kyle Walker at their right-back options, while other Spurs players in the squad include Danny Rose, Dele Alli, Eric Dier and Harry Kane.
