Preparations were underway for last night's 1-0 win over Austria in Middlesbrough, but an injury to Trent Alexander-Arnold spoiled the mood. Less than two weeks before the Three Lions' opening match against Croatia at Wembley.
Bucayo Saka was a joy as the 24-year-old scored his first international goal to seal victory in the warm-up, along with impressive performances from Jude Bellingham and Jack Grealish, but now manager Gareth Southgate has a nervous wait while England assess Alexander-Arnold's thigh injury.
Southgate also condemned at Riverside Stadium those who booed England, who took a knee before the match, as some fans continued to express their opposition to the show of solidarity with anti-racism.
"To see him and other gifted young black and mixed-race footballers take centre stage in England is really pleasing. They deserve support, applause and understanding, not the booing of fundamental beliefs, fundamental rights and, more broadly, their identity."
