London [UK], June 15 (ANI): Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale on Tuesday was called into England's Euro 2020 squad to replace Dean Henderson.

"Henderson withdraws with a hip issue that would continue to limit his involvement in training throughout the tournament," the FA said in an official statement.

Under UEFA regulations, squads are permitted to replace goalkeepers on medical grounds at any stage.

The Manchester United goalkeeper will now return to his club for further assessment and rehabilitation ahead of the 2021-22 season.

Ramsdale was originally a member of Gareth Southgate's pre-tournament group in Middlesbrough having played for England at this year's UEFA U21 EURO in Slovenia in March.

The Sheffield United player, a 2017 UEFA U19 EURO winner, will now follow standard COVID-19 testing protocol before entering the camp.

England started their Euro 2020 campaign with a win as the side defeated Croatia on Sunday at the Wembley Stadium.

Raheem Sterling registered the lone goal as England ended up winning the match and they will next take on Scotland on June 18. (ANI)
