Liverpool defender Joe Gomez withdrawn from England squad

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has withdrawn from England's squad to take on Kosovo on Sunday.

Gomez was booed by fans when he was introduced against Montenegro on Thursday having been involved in a clash with team-mate Raheem Sterling, of Manchester City attacker, in training last Monday.

He has now been ruled out of the trip to Kosovo with a knock picked up in training on Friday and will return to Liverpool for treatment.

He will be joined back on Merseyside by team-mate Jordan Henderson, who has also been ruled out of England's final Euro 2020 qualifier due to a viral infection which has not fully cleared.

Gomez is believed to have suffered an impact injury in a tackle with Kieran Trippier which is not thought to be serious.
