On the eve of their trip to Argentina, the 19-year-old dealt his Young Lions teammates a devastating blow.
Instead, Mateo Kovacic and N’Golo Kante’s ailments, which the club fears will prevent them from playing in the next three games of the season, will be covered by the £20 million transfer from Aston Villa.
Due to the choice to keep Chukwuemeka for three challenging Premier League games and the uncertainty surrounding Mason Mount’s status despite returning to training on Monday, the midfielder will miss the entirety of England’s group stage.
The young player, who will now travel to face Manchester City and Manchester United in the next week before playing Newcastle at home in the season’s last game, is also thought to be a favorite of manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The loss of one of his most crucial players and the fact that it is now too late to make roster adjustments will irritate Under-20s manager Ian Foster.
Foster has already witnessed four other players withdraw from the competition, which England will begin next week against Tunisia.
