Carrick withdraws from England squad through injury

Comments
The midfielder looked set for a return to the starting XI against Switzerland, but must now return to Old Trafford for treatment

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has withdrawn from the England squad due to injury.

The Three Lions qualified for Euro 2016 with a 6-0 win over San Marino on Saturday, with James Milner and Jonjo Shelvey making the cut ahead of the former Tottenham man.


Having previously been tipped to make a return to the starting line-up against Switzerland on Tuesday, the 34-year-old will not be afforded the opportunity to improve on his 33 caps as he returns to Old Trafford for treatment.

The news will come as a blow to Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal, who has utilised the midfielder in all four of the club's Premier League clashes so far this season.
