Latest injury news from England training
Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson trained away from the England squad today, although Reds captain Harry Maguire was pictured with the main group once again.
The Three Lions’ official Twitter account published a live stream of the session at St. George's Park and provided this short update: “14 players are out training, with those who started yesterday's game doing a recovery session. @deanhenderson is also working individually indoors.”
Henderson was an unused substitute during Sunday's 1-0 win over Croatia and it is currently unclear if he has picked up an injury.
In the training footage, Maguire could be seen working hard with the rest of the players as he continues to build his fitness, following the ankle injury that forced him to miss our final five matches of the domestic season, as well as England’s opening Euro 2020 game against Croatia.

England are preparing for Friday night’s all-British clash with Scotland at Wembley Stadium and, while that will presumably come too soon for Maguire, United team-mates Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford are both available for selection.
Speaking to Sky Sports News on Sunday, Wayne Rooney praised the 1-0 win over Croatia but suggested the team needs a little more experience – which our man can provide.
“To win that was massive, Croatia are a good team and it will give the players a relief that they are comfortable in the group now,” Rooney said. “They'll be a bit more relaxed going into the game against Scotland as, if they didn't win, they could have been a bit anxious.
“Scotland will be tough but, after winning the game [against Croatia], I think England will comfortably go through to the next round. That's when I think it could get difficult for England – when you come up against a France, Portugal or Belgium – one of those top teams.
“There's a lot of quality in the squad, my only worry is a lack of experience – it's important Harry Maguire and Jordan Henderson get fit because they will be vital moving forward. Quality-wise, they have as much as anyone in the competition and they have a great chance.”
