Liverpool’s Joe Gomez has withdrawn from the England squad and returned to his club for further assessment of the injury he suffered in Friday’s 1-0 friendly win over the Netherlands.

The 20-year-old defender sustained an ankle injury about 10 minutes into his third senior national appearance.

England have no plans to call up a replacement for their next friendly – at home to Italy on Tuesday.

Gomez has played 29 times for Liverpool in all competitions this season.
