Jamie Vardy has emerged as an early doubt for the Three Lions World Cup quarter-final clash with Sweden this weekend.
The Leicester striker was meant to help England see out the closing stages of their second-round tie against Colombia when he was introduced as an 88th minute substitute, but a last-gasp equaliser forced the game into extra-time. During the additional half-an-hour, Vardy aggravated a long-standing groin problem which meant the Leicester striker was unable to take a spot kick during the shootout – Eric Dier stepped in to score the winning penalty. Post-match Vardy received an injection and he will be monitored closely during the build-up to Saturday while the likes of Ashley Young, Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Kyle Walker also need to be checked. "It's like a scene from M*A*S*H in the dressing room," Gareth Southgate said after the win. "Some just cramp, and some need just a little bit more assessment, so we'll know more over the next 36 hours." Jul 4 - 6:43 AM
