Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been released from the England squad and has returned to his club for further assessment.
The midfielder was withdrawn at half-time of the Three Lions’ UEFA Nations League clash with Belgium on Sunday night after feeling “a bit of tightness” according to national team manager Gareth Southgate.
On Monday evening, the Football Association confirmed Henderson will therefore sit out Wednesday’s UEFA Nations League meeting with Iceland at Wembley.
The reigning champions are back in Premier League action on Sunday when they take on Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City at Anfield.
Since the Reds last played, they lost Henderson’s team-mate at both club and country, Joe Gomez, to a serious knee injury suffered in England training ahead of their first fixture of the international break against the Republic of Ireland.
The centre-back has subsequently undergone successful surgery to repair a damaged tendon in his left knee but could miss the remainder of the current season.
Meanwhile, with right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold also currently injured, Liverpool will also be sweating on the fitness of Andy Robertson in the hope that they don’t have an entire back four sidelined for the visit of the Foxes.

Robertson captained Scotland to a penalty shoot-out victory in Serbia on Thursday to secure their qualification for the European Championship finals – the first international tournament they have reached since the 1998 World Cup – but then sat out their 1-0 Nations League defeat in Slovakia on Sunday.
The left-back remains in former Liverpool assistant manager Steve Clarke’s squad for Wednesday’s trip to Israel for another Nations League fixture.
