Premier League Arsenal concern as Saka withdraws from England squad

Arsenal forward Bukayo Saka has withdrawn from the England squad due to injury.

Saka has been in fine form for Arsenal this season as they sit top of the Premier League and prepare for a Champions League quarter-final clash with Bayern Munich.

But the 22-year-old will miss friendlies against Brazil on Saturday and Belgium on Tuesday – the last two England games before Gareth Southgate announces his squad for Euro 2024 in May.

Saka has withdrawn as a precaution due to a minor muscle issue and will be assessed back at Arsenal in the coming days.

“Bukayo Saka has left the England camp and returned to his club for continued rehabilitation,” the Football Association said in a statement on Thursday.

“The Arsenal forward reported to St George’s Park with an injury and has been unable to participate in training. No further replacements are planned as a 25-man England squad continue their preparation for the forthcoming internationals with Brazil and Belgium.”
