Antonio, who is yet to win an international cap, picked up the injury during his side's 3-2 loss against Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

And he has been withdrawn from the squad to face Germany in a friendly and Lithuania in a World Cup qualifier, the club announced on Sunday.

England are two points clear at the top of Group F in qualifying, unbeaten and yet to concede.
