England forward Jadon Sancho will not be participating in the World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Poland after suffering a “minor knock”.
According to a statement by English Football Association, “following further assessment, the 21-year-old has returned to his club and is expected to recover in time for Manchester United’s fixture with Newcastle United on Saturday September 11.”
Sancho missed England’s 4-0 win in Hungary on Thursday due to the problem he suffered in training.
He will also not be available for the match against Andorra at Wembley on Sunday as well as Wednesday’s clash with Poland in Warsaw.
Sancho has featured in all of United’s Premier League matches since joining Borussia Dortmund in the close-season.
He made his first start for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team in the 1-0 win at Wolves before the international break.
