A report claims that England striker Jamie Vardy is carrying a groin injury that could see him miss the quarter-final clash with Sweden on Saturday.

Jamie Vardy is reportedly a fitness doubt for England's showdown with Sweden in the quarter-finals of the World Cup due to a groin injury.

The 31-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in the Three Lions' penalty-shootout win against Colombia in Moscow on Tuesday evening.

Vardy, who has now appeared in three of England's four matches in Russia, is said to have picked up the knock in the latter stages of extra time.

Sky Sports News suggests that the Leicester City marksman was down to take his side's fifth penalty, but after having an injection it was decided that Eric Dier would instead step up, with the midfielder successfully converting to seal victory.

England's last-eight showdown with Sweden takes place in Samara on Saturday afternoon.
