Harry Maguire will keep the Manchester United captaincy after his suspended prison sentence was set aside on appeal.
But the £80million defender is unlikely to be recalled to the England squad for next week’s Nations League games in Iceland and Denmark.
Maguire, 27, was removed from Gareth Southgate’s squad on Tuesday evening after being convicted of repeated bodily harm, violence against public officials and attempted bribery by a Greek court.
And the FA will not be rushed into yet another U-turn until they can establish the full legal facts behind yesterday’s developments.
But Southgate is ready to keep the door open for his key defender to possibly return to international duty for October’s Wembley games against Wales, Belgium and Denmark.

Dean Henderson has signed a new five-year £120,000-a-week contract at Manchester United.
The deal has the option of an extra year.
A United statement read: “Manchester United is delighted to announce that Dean Henderson has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until June 2025, with the option to extend for a further year.
“Henderson, who has been named in the England squad for the upcoming September internationals, is a product of United’s academy and has been at the club since the age of 14.
“The goalkeeper kept 13 clean sheets in the Premier League last season, the joint-third highest in the division, and was nominated for the Premier League Young Player of the Season award.”
Here are the numbers on Lionel Messi's next club after he put in a transfer request at Barcelona.
SON OF A GUN
Deon Henderson has reportedly agreed a new six-year deal at Manchester United.
Sky Sports have claimed that the goalkeeper will earn £120,000-a-week at Old Trafford.
Henderson will not be allowed to leave on loan as he looks to compete with David De Gea for the No1 jersey.
The 23-year-old has spent the last seasons on loan at Sheffield United.
FEARS FOR DALEY
Former United player Daley Blind collapsed last night during a friendly between Ajax and Hertha Berlin.
Blind fell to the ground towards the end of Ajax's 1-0 win in Amsterdam.
Fortunately he was able to leave the pitch unassisted, but was seen clutching at his chest while lying on the ground.
Ajax boss Erik ten Hag said: “Daley Blind's ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) went off.
“He got subbed off straight away and he is feeling okay now, he is feeling fine.
“We will do research about this now.”
Blind was cleared to return to action in February after the 30-year-old Dutch defender was diagnosed with heart muscle inflammation in December, after suffering a dizzy spell in a Champions League game with Valencia.
MARCS SET GO
Barcelona youngster Marc Jurado has flown to England to finalise his move to Manchester United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are set to complete a £1.5million transfer for the 16-year-old right-back.
Jurado shared a snap of his departure gate ahead of flight to Manchester on Wednesday.
Alongside the image, the talented teenager wrote: “A new dream is coming.”
MAN UTD NEWS
Harry Maguire has been granted a full retrial after a successful appeal against the conviction for bribery, aggravated assault and resisting arrest he received in Greece yesterday.
A Man Utd statement read: “An appeal against yesterday's verdict was lodged this morning by Harry's legal team.
“In accordance with Greek judicial process, the filing of an appeal extinguishes the initial court verdict and nullifies the conviction.
“The appeal has been accepted and will lead to a full retrial in a more senior court.
“This means that Harry has no criminal record and is once again presumed innocent until proven guilty.
“Accordingly, he is not subject to any international travel restrictions.”

The £22.4million offer has been knocked back by the Ligue 1 side, with Telefoot claiming that it would take an offer similar to that that helped Anthony Martial part ways with the club five years ago, to prize Badiashile from their clutches.
Meanwhile, Spanish reports claim Manchester United are in contact with Barcelona for a sensational move for Lionel Messi.
According to SPORT, United and PSG have reached out to the unsettled 33-year-old.
It is claimed Old Trafford chiefs have been in touch with Messi’s representatives, who believe they have the financial capability to pull off the transfer.
And finally, Jose Mourinho has revealed Sir Alex Ferguson urged him to sign Dele Alli during his time in charge of Manchester United.
