Harry Kane has been released from the England squad ahead of Tuesday’s friendly with Spain and will return to Tottenham.
The 23-year-old was called up by interim boss Gareth Southgate for England's World Cup Qualifier against Scotland on Friday night despite only just returning for his club side after seven weeks out with an ankle ligament injury.
Kane made a scoring return for Tottenham against Arsenal in the north London derby last weekend but was an unused substitute during the 3-0 win over Scotland at Wembley and Southgate says it is better for him to continue his recovery from injury with Spurs.
"Harry reported for us last week having not played a full game for some seven weeks but Tottenham were more than happy for him to come with us," Southgate said.
"It was never really my intention to start him in a game and I think it's important that he gets a different training programme to what we're going to follow over the next couple of days.
"I'm really grateful to Tottenham for letting us have him for the Qualifier. Once we'd assessed our injury status and the fact we were fine and covered for what we'd do for this game, the sessions that we're going to do aren't what Harry needs at this time, having had such a long lay-off."
