Sunderland’s promising goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has pulled out of the England U21 squad this week due to a slight thigh strain.

Pickford sustained the thigh strain in the 1-1 draw at Southampton and will remain on Wearside as a precaution.

The Young Lions take on Norway next Tuesday at Colchester United’s Community Stadium.
