Andy Carroll has pulled out of England's opening World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.
The West Ham loan signing suffered a hamstring injury during an impressive debut in his side's 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday afternoon.
Manager Sam Allardyce said after the game it was unlikely Carroll would be able to join up with the England squad and he FA have confirmed that, although no decision will be made about replacements until after Sunday's three Barclays Premier League games have been played.
"West Ham United forward Andy Carroll has withdrawn from the England squad to face Moldova and Ukraine," said the FA in a statement. "After picking up an injury in the match against Fulham, Carroll will not be part of the squad for England's opening FIFA World Cup qualifying matches next week.
"Any decision on whether to call additional players into the squad will not be made until after the three fixtures on Sunday have been completed."
