Antonio withdrawn from England squad

Michail Antonio has withdrawn from the England squad after sustaining a hamstring injury against Leicester on Saturday.

The Hammers winger was set to make his England debut against Germany in midweek but has been removed from the squad having felt a twinge during Saturday 3-2 defeat against Leicester.

And the news represented a triple blow for Slaven Bilic, who also lost Winston Reid and Pedro Obiang to injury during the match.




"He felt something, but it's not like Reidy or Pedro as he played the whole game," said the Hammers boss during his post-match press conference. "The medical team told me he's probably going to be removed from the England team because of the hamstring.

"We have three injuries, three players. First Winston, who had to leave the pitch with a pain in his abductor. Pedro also had to come off because of a tackle on his ankle. He's not one that comes off very easily so again, we have to see in the next couple of days."




Obiang has since been ruled out for the rest of the campaign following a scan, whilst Reid could face up to six weeks out as a result of his injury. Antonio is expected to be sidelined for around a month.
