Diogo Jota sent back to Liverpool early after injury


Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has been sent home ahead of Portugal's game with Luxembourg tonight

Jota missed Monday's open training session with what is reported to be a muscle issue.

The Reds forward is with the Seleccao as they prepare for Tuesday's game with Luxembourg at Estadio Algarve, but was not part of the squad that beat Qatar 3-0 on Saturday.

In a statement , the Portuguese FA confirmed that the forward had already left the national squad after being deemed unavailable for selection:

"Diogo Jota was dismissed by the National Selector, Fernando Santos, after being considered unavailable by the FPF Health and Performance Unit to face Luxembourg, in a meeting to be held this Tuesday."
