England receives Trippier boost

England receives Trippier boost ahead of World Cup third-place play-off

July 13, 2018 By Ali M.
The Tottenham ace was one of three major injury concerns for the Belgium clash.

England's hopes of winning the World Cup may have ended on Wednesday, but their road in Russia is not over. The Three Lions will play one more match before heading home and that is the third-place playoff.

Gareth Southgate's men must beat Belgium on Saturday to finish the competition in third. Fortunately for England, they have received a huge boost amid injury concerns over three key players.

Sky Sports reported on Thursday that the 1966 champion could be without Jordan Henderson, Kyle Walker, and Kieran Trippier for their Red Devils clash. However, the latter of the three has made a "swift return" to training, in the words of the Daily Mail.

The Tottenham ace, who scored England's only goal in the 2-1 semi-final defeat via a stunning free-kick effort, was seen on the pitch with his team-mates in preparation for the upcoming game. Despite this, it remains unclear whether he will be 100 percent fit to feature this weekend after leaving the pitch in tears on Wednesday due to a groin strain.

As for Walker and Henderson, little was mentioned. Despite also substituted off during extra-time due to cramp and fatigue, they were both pictured during the training session.

As for the entire squad, they were in a good mood after suffering heartbreak in the last four. Many of Southgate's men were reduced to tears upon the final whistle but they were all smiles ahead of Saturday's tie.
