Injured Alli to miss Switzerland match

Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli has withdrawn from the England squad for Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland with a minor muscle strain.

He picked up the problem in Saturday's 2-1 Nations League defeat by Spain.

The 22-year-old will be treated by his club rather than joining the squad at Leicester's King Power Stadium.

Manager Gareth Southgate had already brought in Leicester's Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray from the Under-21s and has not called up a replacement for Alli.


Left-back Chilwell, 21, and forward Gray, 22, could both make international debuts on their home ground.

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw left the camp earlier following the concussion he suffered in a nasty collision with Dani Carvajal at Wembley on Saturday.

He had reported back to St George's Park for monitoring but was released back to his club after showing no ill effects.

England's defeat by Spain was their first match since reaching the World Cup semi-finals in Russia.
