Johnstone withdraws from England squad

Sam Three Lions

Sam Johnstone has withdrawn from the England squad owing to illness.

Albion’s No.1 was called up by Gareth Southgate on Monday for the Three Lions’ friendly matches against Switzerland and Ivory Coast.

But Johnstone will now return home while he recovers before re-joining his Baggies teammates ahead of their Sky Bet Championship fixture at Birmingham City after the March international break.
