Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has withdrawn from the England squad with a back issue according to the English FA.
In a statement, FA noted: “Aaron Wan-Bissaka has withdrawn from the England squad.
“The Manchester United right-back has returned to his club due to a back issue. With Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kieran Trippier already included in Gareth Southgate’s now 24-man squad, no replacements are planned.”
Bissaka's had hoped to win his first senior England cap in their next assignments against Bulgaria and Kosovo after a sterling start with United in the Premier League but the injury means he will have to wait longer for this to happen.
His absence will mean Gareth Southgate depend on Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold or Kieran Trippier who just like Bissaka, joined a new club in Atletico Madrid this summer.
Right-back is an area in which Southgate is blessed and the presence of Trippier and Arnold meant that Southgate didn’t hand a call up to Man City defender Kyle Walker.
It remains to be seen whether Bissaka will be fit for United’s game against Leicester on September 14.
