Saka an injury concern for England

Bukayo Saka is an injury doubt for England’s Euro 2020 quarter-final against Ukraine after suffering a knock in training on Friday.

Saka started England’s last two victories against the Czech Republic and Germany but faces a late fitness test ahead of Saturday’s game in Rome.

“We’ve just got to check on Bukayo, who had a slight knock today,” said England boss Gareth Southgate.

“Other than that everybody is available.”

Henderson: Anyone underestimating Ukraine is delusional

England vice-captain Jordan Henderson says anyone underestimating quarter-final opponents Ukraine is “delusional”.

England are overriding favourites having beaten rivals Germany 2-0 at Wembley in Tuesday’s last-16 encounter, but Henderson is not taking anything for granted heading into the quarter-final.

“It was a fantastic performance but we haven’t achieved anything yet and we’ve still got a long way to go,” the 31-year-old said.

“Full focus on Ukraine. It’ll be a really difficult test and anybody that says that it won’t be are delusional, really.

“I know people say ‘well, we beat Germany’ but you can’t underestimate the importance of this game and how hard good of a team Ukraine are and how hard it will be against them.

“We’re fully prepared and fully aware of that. We just need to go out there and give absolutely everything again and hopefully that’s enough to get us through.”
