England’s preparations for the Euro 2020 final got under way at sunny St George’s Park on Thursday.

Roberto Mancini’s Italy lie in wait at Wembley this weekend after the Three Lions secured a 2-1 extra-time win against Denmark in Wednesday’s semi-final.

Gareth Southgate’s starters against the Danes did recovery work as attention turned to the Azzurri, with substitutes Jordan Henderson and Jack Grealish joining them working indoors.

Phil Foden and Kieran Trippier came on in extra time but took part in the main session, unlike fellow introductions Grealish and Henderson.

Southgate reported after the game that “it seems like everybody’s come through the game OK in terms of injuries” but admitted it was not the best time to assess everything given the adrenaline that came with victory.
