Euro 2020 LIVE: England to take knee before games, Wales concerns over Ramsey fitness, Rashford set for surgery


Gaerth Southgate has been given a major boost ahead of the Euros as Jordan Henderson has returned to full training.

The Liverpool captain, who’s not played for FOUR months, is in a race to be fit for England’s first group game against Croatia on Sunday, June 13.

The 30-year-old joined in with the bulk of the squad as they continue their preparations for Euro 2020.

Meanwhile, Southgate is expected to deploy a FIVE-MAN defence in tonight’s friendly against Romania.

Kyle Walker could feature as a right-sided centre-back, with Kieran Trippier at wing-back and Luke Shaw deployed on the opposite flank.

Jadon Sancho and Phil Foden are also in line to start either side of Harry Kane.

Finally, Nigel Winterburn believes Ben Chilwell should be England’s No1 left-back ahead of Shaw at the Euros.

He told SunSport: “I wouldn’t mind if either of them played, but if I’m to pick one I’d go Chilwell just based on the feel-good factor.

“He’s been in great form and Chelsea had an unbelievable finish to the season, so I’d go that way.

“The question is whether Southgate goes with four or five at the back and if he prefers one or the other based on the system.

“[Bukayo] Saka is another player who could equally play in that position, so England have some good options there.”
