England have been boosted by Declan Rice’s return to training ahead of the World Cup quarter-final against France.
The West Ham captain is an important part of Gareth Southgate’s team, playing a key role in last year’s run to the European Championship final and starting all four games so far in Qatar.
Rice is one of the first names on the squad sheet, so the midfielder’s absence from training on Wednesday at England’s Al Wakrah training base caused alarm.
The 23-year-old was not feeling well, but midfielder Kalvin Phillips confirmed he was back in Thursday’s session, which was held behind closed doors.
“I think Dec is fit, he’s back in training and doing well,” said the Manchester City player.
“If something goes wrong, I will be there and do my best to be fit for 90 minutes.
“I want to play as many minutes as possible. Regardless of whether Dec or I play, we will do our best.”
