Jones withdraws from England squad

England have confirmed that defender Phil Jones has been released from the squad after sustaining an injury and has since returned to with Manchester United.

The 25-year-old will play no part in the Three Lions' friendly against Germany, and manager Gareth Southgate is still undecided on calling up a replacement. 

Southgate is set to make a decision after the encounter against the world champions in Dortmund, with Chelsea defender Gary Cahill also unavailable for the World Cup qualifier on Sunday against Lithuania due to suspension.
