England secured their place in the knockout stages as group winners after beating Wales in Tuesday’s Battle of Britain.

Gareth Southgate gave his side a day off on Wednesday before enjoying a light recovery session the next day.

However, with the game less than 36 hours away, the Three Lions have intensified their preparations for their first meeting with the African champions.

All 25 players were fit, meaning Southgate will have a full squad to choose from tomorrow.

Harry Kane may not have scored in the tournament but the captain looked relaxed as he headed onto the training ground.

So has Southgate, although the England manager has had some selection issues after beating Wales.

Marcus Rashford and Phil Foden both impressed after their first tournament starts in the game.

And the manager must decide whether to stay with the Manchester duo or recall Raheem Sterling and Bukayo Saka, who were quiet against the United States but shone against Iran.
