Joe Willock has withdrawn from the England under-21 squad due to a calf problem.
The midfielder was handed a call-up as a reward for his good start to the season and admits he’s frustrated that injury has got in the way of a debut for Aidy Boothroyd’s side.
According to football.london, the youngster’s inflamed calf muscle is not serious but he has returned to Arsenal for rest and recuperation.
The player confirmed his withdrawal via a post on Instagram.
Eddie Nketiah and Reiss Nelson still have a chance of featuring when the Young Lions take on Turkey and Kosovo in qualifiers for the Under-21 European Championships in 2021.
