Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier has withdrawn from the England squad for the matches with the United States and Croatia with a groin injury.

The Football Association has announced Trippier's withdrawal, following assessment of the injury at St George's Park.

The 28-year-old joins Arsenal's Danny Welbeck (broken ankle) in pulling out from Gareth Southgate's initial 28-man squad.

Trippier has nine caps, scoring his only goal in the World Cup semi-final loss to Croatia.

He was injured in Spurs' Premier League win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"He'll return to his club to continue rehabilitation," the FA said.
