Sterling withdraws from England squad

With Sterling not replaced in Southgate's squad, Dominic Solanke, the Liverpool forward capped against Brazil last November, was promoted from the Under-21s to make up the numbers in training on Tuesday.

Raheem Sterling has pulled out of the England squad for their matches against Spain and Switzerland with a back problem, the Football Association announced on Monday.

Lallana, 30, was told he would have to withdraw from the squad and will now miss England's games against Spain at Wembley in the UEFA Nations League on Saturday and Switzerland next week.

All the players arrived in matching white Nike t-shirts which simply had England written across the chest in blue lettering.

According to Chase, this might have been a result of the country's decision to disarm its anti-poaching unit. The BBC has quoted Mike Chase of Elephants Without Borders as saying: "I'm shocked".

A quintet of players - Kieran Trippier, Luke Shaw, James Tarkowski, Jesse Lingard and Harry Kane - who had played for their clubs on Sunday underwent a lighter session.

The 25-year-old's displays for Tottenham Hotspur so far this season have also led to suggestions that he may need a rest, despite breaking his August duck in the Premier League.

He is looking to carve out a regular slot in the Blues' midfield under new boss Maurizio Sarri and having impressed under Southgate in Russian Federation this summer, he will hope he can again prove his qualities for his country.
