Dele Alli has withdrawn from England's squad for the friendly against Switzerland on Tuesday with a "minor muscle strain".

The Tottenham midfielder, who picked up the problem in Saturday's 2-1 Nations League defeat to Spain, will be treated by his club rather than joining the Three Lions at Leicester's King Power Stadium.

Manager Gareth Southgate had already bolstered his squad with Foxes pair Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray, both of whom could make their debuts at the home ground, and has not called up a replacement for Alli.

Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray received their first England call-ups as Luke Shaw prepares to return to Manchester United after sustaining concussion against Spain.

Gareth Southgate's men started their first ever UEFA Nations League campaign with a 2-1 defeat to La Roja at Wembley on Saturday evening.

England are back in action against Switzerland in a friendly at the King Power Stadium on Tuesday, when Chilwell and Gray could make their debuts at their home ground.

The Leicester duo move up from England Under-21s as left-back Shaw prepares to head back to his club.

The 23-year-old's England return came to a shuddering halt on Saturday, when he was hurt in a collision with Dani Carvajal early in the second half.

A statement from the Football Association read: "Luke Shaw remained at St. George's Park today for further rest and monitoring having sustained concussion against Spain yesterday. He will return to his club tomorrow."
