Alex McCarthy has pulled out of the England squad through injury, the Football Association has announced.

Tottenham left-back Danny Rose has also withdrawn due to a 'minor injury'.

Gareth Southgate's side travel a tough Nations League double-header this month, kicking off at Croatia on Friday before heading to Spain.

Rose and McCarthy missed the first training session as a precaution, but have now withdrawn from the squad.

"Having arrived in camp with minor injuries, @Alex_Macca23 and Danny Rose have now returned to their clubs and won't feature in this month's game," said the post on England's Twitter account.
