Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has withdrawn from the England squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers due to a thigh injury, the Premier League club said on Monday.
The 24-year-old was last week named in manager Gareth Southgate’s squad for qualifiers against Hungary, Andorra and Poland between 2-8 September.
“Calvert-Lewin has withdrawn… after sustaining a thigh strain in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Brighton & Hove Albion… he will now remain at USM Finch Farm and be assessed by the club’s medical staff,” Everton said in a statement.
Calvert-Lewin, who netted a penalty in Everton’s 2-0 win over Brighton, has four goals from 11 international caps.
