Sterling Withdraws from England squad

Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling has been ruled out of England’s upcoming matches against Spain and Switzerland due to a back problem.

The 23-year-old withdrew from the squad on Monday as the other 22 players assembled for a training camp at St George’s Park.

“Raheem Sterling has withdrawn from the squad due to a problem with his back, with no immediate replacement planned,” read a Football Association statement.

Southgate is already thin on options in the front third following Jamie Vardy’s decision to step back from international duty .

England open their Nations League campaign against Spain at Wembley on Saturday, with a friendly against Switzerland at King Power Stadium to follow three days later.
