(Reuters) - Tottenham Hotspur full back Kieran Trippier has withdrawn from the England squad for matches against the United States and Croatia due to a groin injury, the Football Association said on Tuesday.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.

The 28-year-old 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.
