Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling withdraws from the England squad to face Spain and Switzerland due to a back problem.

Manchester City winger Raheem Sterling has pulled out of the England squad for the upcoming games with Spain and Switzerland due to a back problem.

Sterling was on the scoresheet and played the full 90 minutes for City during their 2-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday, but did not join up with his international teammates at St George's Park on Monday evening.

The 23-year-old is suffering from a lower back injury and has consequently withdrawn from the squad, with Gareth Southgate opting against naming an immediate replacement.

England host Spain at Wembley on Saturday in their opening match of the Nations League before facing Switzerland at the King Power Stadium for a friendly in their first games since reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup this summer.

The likes of Luke Shaw, Joe Gomez, James Tarkowski, Adam Lallana and Alex McCarthy have all been added to Southgate's squad since the tournament in Russia.
