KIERAN TRIPPIER has withdrawn from the England squad ahead of tomorrow night's final Euro 2024 qualifier in North Macedonia.

However, the defender has not joined Newcastle United's lengthy injury list as his absence from the squad that will travel to Skopje is due to a personal matter rather than a problem sustained during Friday night's win over Malta.


Trippier played the full 90 minutes as England won at Wembley on Friday, starting off at right-back before switching to the left of the back four for the second half of the game.

A statement on Newcastle's official website said: "Newcastle United can confirm that Kieran Trippier has returned home from the England squad due to a personal matter.

"Kieran played 90 minutes as the Three Lions defeated Malta 2-0 in a UEFA Euro 2024 qualifier at Wembley on Friday but will miss Monday's trip to North Macedonia."
