Saka played 74 minutes of Arsenal’s 3-3 draw with West Ham on Sunday, but has already been ruled out of England’s first qualifying game at Wembley.


England will also face Albania and Poland during the international break and Gareth Southgate hopes Saka will be available for those two games.


Also England may be without Marcus Rashford against San Marino as the Manchester United striker is suffering a foot injury.


The 23-year-old did not participate in Wednesday’s training session with the rest of the England squad and instead worked in the gym.


Rashford was sidelined in United’s loss to Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.

Rashford has also been struggling with a shoulder injury during the winter period.
