LONDON (AP) — Jordan Henderson and Joe Gomez will miss England's final European Championship qualifier in Kosovo on Sunday due to illness and injury respectively.
Liverpool midfielder Henderson missed the 7-0 home win over Montenegro on Thursday after arriving in the England camp with a viral infection and he has not fully recovered, the FA said in a news release on Saturday.
Gomez, Henderson’s Liverpool teammate, suffered a knee injury in training on Friday and has not recovered sufficiently enough to travel.
England has already secured a place in next year’s finals.
