England’s forward Jadon Sancho has been ruled out of the World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Poland after suffering a “minor knock”.
Sancho was absent in England’s 4-0 win against Hungary on Thursday due to the problem he suffered in training.
The 21-year-old will be absent against Andorra at Wembley on Sunday and in Wednesday’s clash with Poland in Warsaw.
“Following further assessment, the 21-year-old has returned to his club and is expected to recover in time for Manchester United’s fixture with Newcastle United on Saturday September 11,” an English Football Association made this statement on Saturday.
Sancho has featured in all of Manchester United’s Premier League matches since joining Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season.
He made his first start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team in the 1-0 win at Wolves before the international break.
Sancho, who has three goals in 22 appearances for England, missed his penalty in the Three Lions’ shootout defeat against Italy in the Euro 2020 final in July.
