Luke Shaw withdrew from the England squad for Sunday's World Cup qualifier in Slovakia after missing training on Saturday morning.

The 21-year-old left-back has only just returned from double leg-break and has started the season well with Manchester United.

He was replaced in training at St George's Park by Arsenal's Tafari Moore, who is part of the Under-20s set-up, and did not fly with the team.

Shaw now misses out on a potential England return having last been capped almost a year ago in a 2-0 Euro 2016 qualifying victory over Switzerland at Wembley.
