England boss Gareth Southgate: 'Dele Alli only has slim chance of facing Panama'

Southgate: 'Dele Alli remains a doubt'

England boss Gareth Southgate says that midfielder Dele Alli only has "a slim chance" of overcoming a thigh injury in time to feature against Panama.

England boss Gareth Southgate has suggested that midfielder Dele Alli remains a big doubt for Sunday's World Cup meeting with Panama.

During the first half of the Three Lions' opener with Tunisia, Alli sustained a thigh problem and although the Tottenham Hotspur playmaker continued until the closing stages of the game, a scan revealed a minor injury.

Alli has started to resume running on the training ground but at a press conference, Southgate told reporters that the 22-year-old only has "a slim chance" of retaining his place in the team.

Should Alli miss out, Southgate is likely to call upon Ruben Loftus-Cheek, with the Chelsea academy graduate impressing during his cameo role on Monday night.

Victory for England in Nizhny Novgorod could be enough to secure a place in the last 16 of the competition.
