Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Ashley Young to be fit for Sweden clash

first_imgEngland have been boosted ahead of Saturday’s World Cup quarter-final against Sweden with news Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Ashley Young are expected to be fit to play. 3 3 England were given a rough ride by Colombia on Tuesday, but kept their heads to win “We have got to check a couple. I think Kyle’s is cramp.“We’ve got to check Ashley’s, which is more of an ankle. Vardy feels a bit with his groin.“You never know with cramp whether that is just cramp or something a little bit more.“But that will take a good 36 hours. We are probably a little bit behind on our prep but we will judge that.”Fabian Delph has also given England a timely boost by returning to the group after travelling home for the birth of his daughter.Tune into talkSPORT for LIVE commentary of Sweden v England in the World Cup quarter-finals – Saturday, June 7: KICK OFF 3PM BST Vardy is an injury doubt for Saturday’s game against Sweden center_img The Leicester City striker was a late substitute against Colombia and fans were puzzled when he did not step up to take a penalty.It was later revealed he had suffered a groin strain during extra-time, which led to him to have an injection immediately after the match.Speaking on Wednesday, Southgate played down fears over his team and seemed at ease about their fitness ahead of the Sweden game.“I think he’s fine,” Southgate said of Alli, who was replaced by Eric Dier in the 81st minute against Colombia.“We felt it was probably a good time to try solidify a little bit and with hindsight it was probably a good thing that he didn’t go to extra-time because that would have put him at a bit more risk.“So, hopefully he’s come through it OK. The Three Lions had a number of injury concerns following Tuesday’s epic penalty shoot-out victory over Colombia, which sealed their place in the last-eight.Manager Gareth Southgate joked that his dressing room was “like a scene from M*A*S*H*” following the physical, ill-tempered encounter against the South Americans.Alli was substituted in the second-half after struggling with a thigh strain that kept him out of group games against Panama and Belgium, while Young picked up an ankle injury.Captain Kane had a slight back problem after a number of tussles with Colombia defenders, Kyle Walker suffered from cramp and Jesse Lingard also picked up a knock.But, according to Sky Sports, all have responded well to treatment and there are no fears from within the England camp over their availability for Saturday’s game against Sweden in Samara.The Three Lions squad are set to take part in a private training session on Thursday, after only half of their players took part a light recovery session back at the Repino training base on Wednesday.Jamie Vardy is the only serious doubt for the quarter-final showdown.
