Jesse Lingard, meanwhile, asked to be excused from England duty. While Luke Shaw left the England squad with a knock.

On Saturday night Man United fans were sweating over the health of Eric Bailly.

Bailly was subbed out of the Ivory Coast’s win over Rwanda following a head collision.

There were fears Bailly may have swallowed his tongue.
