England has suffered a blow as both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jack Grealish have withdrawn from the squad for the upcoming matches against Ukraine and Scotland due to injury.

Manchester City midfielder Jack Grealish has been sidelined with a thigh problem that kept him out of City’s 5-1 win over Fulham. As a result, he will not be available for England’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine on September 9 and the friendly against Scotland on September 12.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold suffered a minor hamstring strain during his team’s 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday. While he is expected to miss no more than one Premier League game, his availability for Liverpool’s clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on September 16 remains uncertain.

These injuries add to The Three Lion’s defensive woes, with John Stones, Luke Shaw, and Tyrone Mings already sidelined. However, England manager Gareth Southgate has decided not to call up any replacements for these matches.

The absence of these key players will pose a challenge for England as they prepare for their upcoming fixtures. Both Grealish and Alexander-Arnold are highly regarded in their respective positions and have been important contributors to the national team.

It’s a setback for England as they aim to secure positive results in their Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine and their friendly against Scotland. The team will need to adapt to these absences and make the best use of the available squad members to win these matches.
