Adam Lallana: Declared fit

Adam Lallana has shaken off an ankle knock as England head into the Euro 2016 last-16 clash against Iceland with a clean bill of health.

Roy Hodgson’s men travel to Nice on Sunday ahead of facing the smallest country ever to feature at a major tournament. Iceland have a population of around 323,000 but they have performed admirably so far beating Austria and drawing with Hungary and Portugal.

Monday’s match at the Stade de Nice is the final round of 16 match and one England head into without any injury concerns.

Lallana, one of the five players to start every Group B game but who has yet to score for England, had been a concern after being pictured with an ice pack on his right ankle.

However, the Liverpool attacking midfielder trained at the Stade des Bourgognes on Saturday, as did the rest of the 23-man squad.

Harry Kane is set to be recalled in attack, while Daniel Sturridge is expected to keep his place on the right, while Wayne Rooney will return in midfield and Kyle Walker and Danny Rose look set to return in the full-back positions.
