Jude Bellingham and Levi Colwill have withdrawn from the England squad for the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia.

Both Real Madrid midfielder Bellingham and Chelsea defender Colwill have shoulder injuries.

Five players have now pulled out of Gareth Southgate’s initial squad for the games on 17 and 20 November.

On Monday, Cole Palmer, Ezri Konsa and Rico Lewis replaced the injured James Maddison, Callum Wilson and Lewis Dunk.

Meanwhile, Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford and Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips will meet up with the squad later this week for personal reasons.

Manager Southgate will not add to the squad for Malta’s visit to Wembley on Friday and the trip to North Macedonia on Monday.

England have already qualified for next summer’s European Championship and one more win will assure them of top spot in Group C and being one of the top seeds in Germany.
