“Having arrived in camp with minor injuries, @Alex_Macca23 and Danny Rose have now returned to their clubs and won’t feature in this month’s game,” said the post on England’s Twitter account.
Danny Welbeck, another who had sat out training earlier in the week as a precaution, was also missing again as England trained at St George’s Park on Thursday morning.
But the Arsenal forward was set to travel with the squad to Croatia in the afternoon.
The other 22 members of Southgate’s group were involved.
