London - West Ham United winger Michail Antonio has withdrawn from the England squad for their games against Germany and Lithuania due to a hamstring injury, his club have announced.

"Michail Antonio has been withdrawn from England's squad for their games against Germany and Lithuania next week after picking up a hamstring injury in Saturday's 3-2 loss against Leicester City," West Ham said in a statement published late on Sunday.

"Antonio was withdrawn from the squad after being assessed by both the Hammers' and the England medical teams and will remain at Rush Green during the international break."

England have not announced a replacement for 26-year-old Antonio, who is still waiting for his first international cap.

Gareth Southgate's side play Germany in a glamour friendly in Dortmund on Wednesday before resuming their World Cup qualifying campaign at home to Lithuania on Sunday.
