Jamie Vardy pulls out of England squad due to injury

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has withdrawn from the England squad to play Scotland and France after picking up a minor injury in training.

Gareth Southgate’s men travel to Hampden Park for a World Cup Group F Qualifier on Saturday, before heading to Paris for a season-ending friendly on June 13.

Vardy has now been ruled out of both matches after he sustained a minor tear in his quad in training on Tuesday and has returned to Leicester for treatment.

A short statement from the Football Association read: “Jamie Vardy has
left the England squad as a precaution after picking up a minor injury
in training at St. George’s Park yesterday.

“The Leicester City striker won’t play a part in either Saturday’s World Cup qualifier in Scotland or Tuesday’s trip to France.
“No further players are due to be added to the squad at this moment in time.”
