Luke Shaw has been released from the England squad and has not travelled to Slovakia for their opening World Cup Qualifier on Sunday.

The Manchester United defender, who returned to action at the start of this season following a serious injury suffered in September of last year, has been released from Sam Allardyce's squad.

The left-back did not train with the England players at St George's Park on Saturday morning, as the medical team continue to manage his workload.

With Danny Rose set to start against Slovakia in Trnava this weekend, Shaw has been allowed to return to Manchester to train with his club as a precautionary measure.

Allardyce's remaining 22 players all travelled out to Slovakia on Saturday afternoon. The England boss has already named his starting XI ahead of the Group F clash.
