Good news for Gareth Southgate! Kieran Trippier, Phil Foden back for England’s Euro 2024 Round of 16 match

Good news for Gareth Southgate! Kieran Trippier, Phil Foden back for England’s Euro 2024 Round of 16 match

Phil Foden, who recently returned to the camp after the birth of his third child, trained on Saturday in Blankenhain and is expected to be available for selection.

Kieran Trippier is set to start in England’s UEFA Euro 2024 Round of 16 match against Slovakia after recovering from a calf injury. Despite missing Friday’s training, Trippier participated in Saturday’s session with the full squad, providing a major boost for England. In yet another good news, star Phil Foden is back ahead of England vs Slovakia.

However, if Trippier is not fit enough to play the full 90 minutes, Gareth Southgate might still turn to Ezri Konsa as a makeshift left-back over Liverpool’s versatile defender Joe Gomez.

Phil Foden back ahead of England vs Slovakia

Phil Foden, who recently returned to the camp after the birth of his third child, trained on Saturday in Blankenhain and is expected to be available for selection. Luke Shaw, who declared himself fit for the game in Gelsenkirchen, also trained but is unlikely to start against Slovakia.

Few changes for Euro 2024 Round of 16

The only expected change from the starting XI that drew 0-0 with Slovenia in the final group game on Tuesday is the inclusion of Kobbie Mainoo in place of Conor Gallagher. This means Chelsea’s Cole Palmer, despite receiving praise from Southgate for his impactful performance off the bench in Cologne, will likely start on the bench again. England aims to secure a win and advance to the quarter-finals with this setup.
