In Summary

  • Delph arrived at England’s training ground with an injury and has returned to his club Everton after it was determined he would not be fit for either game.

England midfielder Fabian Delph has been ruled out of their final Euro 2020 qualifiers against Montenegro and Kosovo due to injury, the FA said in a statement on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old Delph arrived at England’s training ground with an injury and has returned to his club Everton after it was determined he would not be fit for either game.

England top Group A with 15 points from six games and will seal a Euro 2020 spot with a win or draw at home to Montenegro at Wembley on Thursday or if Kosovo lose to the Czech Republic. England visit Kosovo in their last qualifier on Sunday.

England are not calling up a replacement for Delph although Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson — who is suspended for the Montenegro match — was joining the squad on Tuesday.
