England suffered another blow on Thursday morning when Andros Townsend pulled out of the squad to face Slovenia and Scotland through injury.

Townsend was unable to train with England for the last two days because of a slight ankle injury he suffered while playing for Tottenham.

And the Football Association confirmed on Thursday that the player would not be fit for Saturday’s Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley or the friendly in Glasgow three days later.

An FA spokesman said: “Andros Townsend will today leave the England squad and return to his club.

“Townsend reported for duty on Monday with a minor injury and will go back to Tottenham Hotspur for further treatment.

“He will miss England’s games against Slovenia and Scotland.”
