The FA Confirms Bellingham, Colwill to Miss England’s Euro 2024 Qualifiers
Jude Bellingham has been ruled out of England’s final Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia, the Football Association announced on Tuesday. Chelsea defender Levi Colwill has also been withdrawn from Gareth Southgate’s squad, meaning five players are missing from the initial group announced for the match at Wembley on November 17 and the away fixture three days later.
Midfielder Bellingham, 20, who has scored 13 goals so far in a stunning debut season for Real Madrid, and Colwill both have shoulder issues. Bellingham has missed Madrid’s last two games because of the problem and, having been assessed at England’s training base at St. George’s Park on Monday, will continue his rehabilitation back in Spain.
On Monday, Cole Palmer, Ezri Konsa, and Rico Lewis replaced the injured James Maddison, Callum Wilson, and Lewis Dunk.

England leads its group on 16 points, three more than Ukraine and six more than Italy. England have already qualified for the Euro 2024 finals in Germany but one more point will guarantee top spot in Group C.
Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford and Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips will join the squad later this week “owing to personal matters”, the FA said.
