Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster has withdrawn from the latest England squad after picking up a slight injury.

The Saints stopper had been selected alongside teammate Ryan Bertrand for the upcoming World Cup qualifier against Scotland and friendly against Spain.

However, Forster will now return to his club to undergo treatment during the international break.

He is replaced in the squad by Sunderland's Jordan Pickford.

England face Scotland at Wembley on Friday night, before hosting Spain the following Tuesday.
