LONDON: Everton midfielder Fabian Delph has been withdrawn from the England squad for the forthcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Bulgaria, the FA said on Monday.

Delph sustained a hamstring injury during Everton's Premier League defeat by Burnley at the weekend.

"No further replacements are planned at this moment in time as Gareth Southgate's preparations begin with a 24-man squad," the FA said in a statement.

England have a 100per cent record in Group A and face the Czechs away on Friday followed by a trip to Bulgaria three days later.
