Liverpool star Adam Lallana has withdrawn from the England squad due to injury with Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason coming in to take his place.

Lallana, 25, has been forced out of Roy Hodgson's squad after sustaining an injury during Liverpool's feisty encounter with Manchester United on Sunday 22 March, the FA confirmed on Monday.

The former Southampton midfielder damaged his groin during the 2-1 defeat at Anfield and will not be available for selection ahead of the Euro 2016 qualifying clash against Lithuania at Wembley on March 27.

The former Southampton captain, who has earned 13 senior international caps in his career to date, will also play no part in next week's friendly against Italy in Turin and could potentially miss Liverpool's next league fixture against Arsenal.

Lallana is the third player to withdraw from England duty following another busy weekend of Premier League action, with Jack Butland, Rob Green and Danny Rose drafted in to compensate for the loss of goalkeeper Fraser Forster and Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw.

Rose will be joined by 23-year-old midfielder Mason, who will be in line to make his full England debut following an impressive season in the first team at White Hart Lane.

Daniel Sturridge has also emerged as a doubt for Hodgson with a hip problem, although as of yet there has been no official confirmation from either the club or the FA with regards to his potential withdrawal.

If Sturridge were to join Lallana on the growing list of absentees, then it seems very likely that in-form Tottenham forward Harry Kane will make his first international start against Lithuania following his hat-trick against Leicester at White Hart Lane.

England currently sit top of qualification group E having won each of their four games on the road to France so far.

Lithuania, meanwhile, currently lie fourth in the standings, behind Slovenia and Switzerland by virtue of goal difference following a heavy defeat to the latter in St Gallen last November.

Hodgson's side will be boosted by a capacity crowd for the match, with all available tickets having now been sold.
