England trio ruled out of World Cup third-place playoff against Belgium

Three England players have been reported as injury doubts for the Three Lions’ World Cup third-place playoff against Belgium on Saturday.

Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker and Jordan Henderson started the semi-final defeat to Croatia on Wednesday night, as England lost 2-1 in extra time at the Luzhniki Stadium.

Trippier was forced from the field in the second period of extra time with a groin strain, while Walker and Henderson were both substituted in added time after suffering from cramp and fatigue.

According to Sky Sports News, the trio are now a doubt for England’s game against their fellow Group G nation in Saint Petersburg on Saturday afternoon.

Despite the injury concerns, all 23 members of Gareth Southgate’s squad are expected to remain in Russia for the encounter with the Red Devils.
