Euro 2024 LIVE: BBC coverage blasted by ex-England star as Three Lions injury update given | Football | Sport

John Stones and Kieran Trippier have insisted they will be ready to play in England’s quarter-final meeting with Switzerland this weekend.

Stones played the full duration of Sunday’s win over Slovakia but was spotted leaving the stadium with strapping on his right knee.

He later said he would be ‘fine’ when asked if the apparent injury would rule him out of contention to face Switzerland.

Trippier, meanwhile, revealed his withdrawal was a tactical decision rather than an enforced one despite being left with a ‘sore’ knee.

“I think it was a really bad tackle, to be honest,” he said.

“The knee is just a little bit sore. Gareth made a decision to maybe tweak things, and it worked. I think I’ll be fine. It’s just about recovering.

“We have five or six days until the next game. This took a lot out of us mentally, going into extra time, but it shows the character of this team.”
