England have been dealt an injury blow with Dean Henderson withdrawing from the squad for Euro 2020 with a hip injury.
The Manchester United goalkeeper was named as one of three goalkeepers in Gareth Southgate’s squad for this summer’s tournament, though was not named on the substitutes’ bench for the Three Lions’ 1-0 opening group game win over Croatia on Sunday.
It has now been confirmed that the 24-year-old has been struggling with a hip problem, with the Red Devils having confirmed that the goalkeeper has now withdrawn from the squad.
Henderson was set to play a back-up role to number one Jordan Pickford and his probable limited involvement has prompted a decision for him to return to his club side for treatment, with the Football Association confirming Aaron Ramsdale will join the squad as a replacement.
“Aaron Ramsdale has replaced Dean Henderson in England’s UEFA Euro 2020 squad,” a statement from the FA read.
“Henderson withdraws with a hip issue that would continue to limit his involvement in training throughout the tournament.
“Under UEFA regulations, squads are permitted to replace goalkeepers on medical grounds at any stage.”
Henderson is one of several Manchester United players currently managing fitness issues, with fellow club and England teammates Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw all suffering injury problems at present.
