A total of six players have now withdrawn from the Three Lions squad for the friendly matches against Germany and Brazil

Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph have become the latest players to pull out of the England squad for the upcoming home friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

Liverpool captain Henderson has withdrawn due to the thigh problem that kept him out of Saturday's 4-1 win against West Ham, while Manchester City duo Sterling and Delph are struggling with back and calf issues respectively.

Replacements for the latest absentees are yet to be announced, though England have announced a further squad update will be released later on Tuesday.
