Henderson, Gomez out of England squad for Kosovo match


England players Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez will miss the match against Kosovo in the UEFA EURO 2020 qualifiers on Sunday. 

“Henderson arrived in camp with a viral infection that has not fully cleared. Meanwhile, his Liverpool team-mate Gomez sustained a knock to his knee in training on Friday and has not recovered sufficiently enough to travel,” the English Football Association said in a statement.

Henderson, a midfielder for English football giant Liverpool, played in 55 matches for his country, while his team-mate Gomez made seven appearances for the English national team.

Following Thursday’s victory against Montenegro 7-0 at Wembley Stadium in London, England secured the EURO 2020 finals to remain atop of the Group A with 18 points.

England are followed by Czech Republic as they had 15 points and Kosovo came third with 11 points in standings after seven matches.
