Burnley defender James Tarkowski leaves England camp for surgery

England defender James Tarkowski has returned to Burnley from a World Cup training camp to undergo a hernia operation, the Football Association has announced.

The 28-year-old, who earned his first England cap in March, was named on Gareth Southgate's five-man standby list and had been training with the national team.

But following assessment, it has been agreed that Tarkowski requires surgery and he will not play any part at the World Cup.

A statement from Burnley said the former Brentford centre-back is expected to be fit for pre-season training when it begins in early July.
