Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been ruled out of the England squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers due to a thigh strain.
Calvert-Lewin did the injury in a 2-0 win in the Premier League at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.
The 24-year-old, who scored his third goal in as many top-flight games this season against the Seagulls, underwent a scan and has been forced to withdraw from the squad.
Gareth Southgate has not called up a replacement, so Euro 2020 second place will have a 24-man squad for the three qualifiers.
The three lions meet Hungary at Puskas Arena on Thursday, before taking on Andorra at Wembley three days later and traveling to meet Poland at the Narodowy Stadium for a week on Wednesday.
England are at the top of Group I with three wins out of three, leading Hungary by two points.
Get well soon, @ CalvertLewin14!
