Aaron Wan-Bissaka's first taste of the England senior set-up has come to an abrupt end due to a back issue.

Gareth Southgate called up the uncapped Manchester United right-back for September's Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.

But the Football Association has confirmed that Wan-Bissaka has returned to Old Trafford.

A statement read: "Aaron Wan-Bissaka has withdrawn from the England squad.

"The Manchester United right-back has returned to his club due to a back issue.

"With Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kieran Trippier already included in Gareth Southgate's now 24-man squad, no replacements are planned."

Former Charlton and Huddersfield manager Chris Powell will work under England boss Gareth Southgate this coming international season.

As part of the Football Association's programme to solve the challenge of under-representation of BAME coaches, Powell - who won five caps as a left-back for England during his playing career - will work under Southgate through to next summer's European Championship.

Former Birmingham defender Michael Johnson, who recently coached Guyana, will work with Under-21 boss Aidy Boothroyd, while Jason Euell, Marcus Bignot, Omer Riza and Matthew Thorpe will join other age-group sides.
