Michael Carrick withdraws from England squad with injury

Michael Carrick withdraws from the England squad to face Switzerland due to an injury.

Michael Carrick has withdrawn from the England squad to face Switzerland due to injury.

The Manchester United midfielder did not feature against San Marino on Saturday, but it was expected that he would play a part against the Swiss in the Euro 2016 qualifier at Wembley on Tuesday evening.

Carrick was forced to withdraw from the Three Lions squad last November, before also missing the summer internationals against the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia with an injury.

Swansea City's Jonjo Shelvey started in a deeper midfield role against San Marino and he could now continue there in Carrick's absence.

Carrick has won 33 caps for England.
