Callum Wilson pulls out of England squad with hamstring injury
Newcastle boss Eddie Howe has revealed Callum Wilson will withdraw from the England squad.
The striker was called up by Gareth Southgate this week for the match against Malta at Wembley on Friday and the trip to North Macedonia on Monday.
But Wilson suffered a hamstring injury in Newcastle’s Champions League defeat against Borussia Dortmund in midweek and missed Saturday’s 2-0 loss at Bournemouth.
Afterwards, Howe revealed Wilson faces a spell on the sidelines.
He said: “Callum won’t travel with England. He’s going to be out for a number of weeks.”
Wilson’s withdrawal could see a call-up for Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah.Published: by Radio NewsHub
