Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Dele Alli is likely to be part of the England squad named tomorrow, although defender Kieran Trippier has less chance of being involved.
That’s according to the London Evening Standard, who write that Alli made a successful return to the Spurs first team on Saturday.
The 22-year-old had not featured for seven weeks after picking up a problematic hamstring injury, but played 82 minutes of the 2-1 defeat to Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium.
It is understood that he came through the Premier League match unscathed and is therefore available for selection by Gareth Southgate and his coaching staff.
The same cannot be said for Trippier, who missed the trip to the South Coast and the second leg of Spurs’ Champions League victory over Borussia Dortmund with a gluteal muscle strain.
The 16-cap international will have been assessed today by the medical staff of both his club and the FA, leading to a final decision on his availability.
England will take on the Czech Republic on Friday before a trip to Montenegro three days later, both in the qualifying campaign for the 2020 European Championships.
