Smith Rowe picks up injury while on international duty, doubtful for Liverpool clash

Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe has picked up an injury while on international duty with England U21. 

England U21 are preparing to take on Croatia tomorrow in a must-win encounter after a back-to-back defeat in the European Championship group stage. 

"We have got a couple of players that we are waiting to hear from off the back of a few scans. We are giving people the longest possible time so I have a good group to choose from," Aidy Boothroyd, manager of England U21s, said. 

"We have one or two situations where I am waiting for the evidence from the medical team to make a decision. Callum is definitely out and has gone back to his club. With everyone else, we are keeping them in as they have a fighting chance to be ready. As for Emile, he will be very doubtful I would say."

It remains to be seen if Smith will be available for selection over the weekend when Arsenal take on Liverpool on Saturday.
