Tottenham Hotspur full back Kieran Trippier has withdrawn from the England squad for matches against the United States and Croatia due to a groin injury, the Football Association said on Tuesday.
Trippier, who scored England`s only goal in the World Cup semi-final defeat by Croatia, picked up the injury in the first half of Tottenham`s 1-0 win over Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday.

Juan Foyth banished the memory of his nightmare Premier League debut to score Tottenham Hotspur’s only goal in a 1-0 win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
One week after the 20-year-old Argentine defender conceded two penalties in the 3-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers, he bravely headed home a rebound in the 66th minute as Spurs registered a seventh successive league win over Palace.
“The first half was difficult but the most important thing is we win,” said Foyth.
“I think the two penalties I conceded against Wolves, I have to learn from. I’ve worked in training but these two penalties helped me with experience.”
Trippier reported for international duty at England`s St. George`s Park facility on Monday but has been sent back to Spurs to continue rehabilitation.
England host the U.S. in a friendly on Thursday and Croatia in the Nations League on Sunday.
