Dele Alli has been sent for a scan as England chiefs assess the thigh injury he picked up in Monday’s 2-1 win over Tunisia.
The Tottenham star sustained the problem during the first half of the win in Volgograd but played on until the 80th minute, when he was eventually replaced by Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
Alli is hopeful that the injury is not too serious, confirming to reporters post match: “Hopefully I’m OK. It’s my quad.”
The Three Lions returned to their training base in Repino early on Tuesday morning.
Those who started the match were given the day off, but Alli was sent for a scan to ascertain just how serious the issue is, leaving Gareth Southgate to sweat over his fitness for Sunday’s meeting with Panama.
After the win over Tunisia, Three Lions boss Southgate admitted Alli had been struggling before the break but had been determined to continue.
