JAMIE VARDY is a doubt for England’s World Cup quarter-final against Sweden with a groin strain.
The 31-year-old made an impressive impact as an 88th-minute substitute in the last-16 clash against Colombia yesterday but was conspicuous by his absence from the five spot-kick takers.
It is understood that the Leicester striker sustained a groin complaint.
Vardy had an injection after the match and will now be sweating for his place in Saturday’s quarter-final against the Swedes in Samara.
Southgate said that the dressing room was “like a scene from M*A*S*H” after going the distance in Moscow, where Dele Alli, Ashley Young and Kyle Walker were others that looked in discomfort.
The England manager expects to get a clearer idea about the severity of any issues tomorrow, when the team will hold a training session behind closed doors.
