Nathaniel Clyne has pulled out of the England squad to face Scotland and France because of injury, manager Gareth Southgate has confirmed.
The Liverpool defender has won 14 caps for his country but will have to wait to add to his tally after sustaining an unspecified problem.
Fellow full-back Kieran Trippier is in the squad for the first time, however, and Southgate admits he is impressed with how the former Burnley defender ended the season at Tottenham.
“I watched him [Trippier] a lot at Burnley,” said Southgate. “He has got a good mentality and I like his play in the final third of the pitch, it is high quality.
“He is one of the best crossers in the league and his selection of passes is good.
“It has obviously been an unusual situation, we have had two of our best full-backs [Trippier and Kyle Walker] at Tottenham and it’s been nice from our point of view that Kieran has had matches at the end of the season.
“He is someone we have been following but we will be without Nathaniel Clyne as he has been carrying an injury.
“That is why we named three right-backs as we thought that might be an issue, so we will be with Kieran and Kyle Walker.
“Kieran impressed me at Burnley in the season they had in the Premier League and he has finished the season very well at Tottenham.”
