Five England players sat out England training as Roy Hodgson started preparing for Wednesday’s friendly with Denmark.
The likes of Kyle Walker, Andros Townsend, Adam Lallana, Steven Caulker and John Ruddy ended up having to undergo recovery work instead of taking part in the training session that was being held at Tottenham Hotspur’s training ground.
Following being sidelined for Sunday’s 1-0 win over relegation battlers Cardiff City, Kyle Walker is now doubtful to play for the Three Lions as Spurs boss Tim Sherwood suggested that he would play no part for England.
“He was not fit to play here today, so will not be fit for England either,” Sherwood said after the match.
“I’m not sure but he will probably link up with England as they will be training at our complex in the early part of the week.”
Lallana played the entire 90 minutes as his Southampton side were defeated 3-0 by Liverpool on Saturday, but wasn’t deemed fit enough to train with England team mates.
Cardiff defender Steven Caulker, Tottenham’s Andros Townsend and Norwhich goalkeeper John Ruddy were given more time for a recovery after playing for their clubs on Sunday.
