Due to injuries, Jude Bellingham and Levi Colwill will not play for England this month against North Macedonia and Malta in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.
Bellingham and Colwill both had shoulder injuries lately, preventing them from playing in the last games of their respective clubs before the international break.
The majority of Gareth Southgate’s November international team met again on Monday at St George’s Park ahead of the Three Lions’ final matches for this year.
Bellingham and Colwill are the most recent players to be judged unfit by Southgate, who has also seen James Maddison, Callum Wilson, and Lewis Dunk withdraw from England duties in recent days.
Colwill earned his senior debut for the Three Lions last month in a 1-0 friendly victory over Australia, whilst Bellingham, who is 20 years old, has already received 27 caps for England.
Following their first six qualifying matches, England has already guaranteed their spot in Euro 2024, with both of their opponents this month ousted from the running to compete in the German finals next summer.
A statement from England on Tuesday read: “Jude Bellingham and Levi Colwill will play no part in England’s forthcoming UEFA EURO 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia.
“The pair arrived at St. George’s Park for assessments on Monday but will now return to Real Madrid and Chelsea, respectively, to continue rehabilitation.”
