London - Danny Welbeck has pulled out of the England squad after sustaining a knee injury in Friday's 4-0 win over Lithuania in a Euro 2016 qualifier.

The injury to Welbeck came in the second half of the victory at Wembley and he was replaced in the 77th minute.

The Football Association confirmed on Saturday that Welbeck had been sent back to Arsenal.

The striker will therefore not take part in Tuesday's friendly against Italy in Turin.
