returning from Basel, where he starred in a non-participating role as Liverpool lost the UEFA Europa League
Final on Wednesday night. Gary Cahill also has his first training

Cahill receives a painkilling injection in his hip.
Sunday, 22 May 2016 - England come

Friday, 27 May 2016 -
History is made as Marcus Rashford becomes the youngest player
to score on his debut for England, beating a record held by Tommy
Lawton since 1938. England's newest scorer is joined by England's top
scorer, Wayne Rooney, on the scoresheet. Eric Dier's unfortunate own
goal was a consolation for the Australian team.
Monday, 30 May 2016 - The
England squad return to training at Watford FC's training

whereas Ryan Bertrand sat out the early session, so he could receive
treatment on a knock.

June 2016 - Ryan Bertrand misses training again because of an
injury that will keep him for playing any part in tomorrow night's
friendly against Portugal. He is still expected to be fit for the
European Championship Finals.
Thursday, 2 June 2016 - England concluded their preparations
for Euro 2016 with a narrow win over 10-man Portugal. Chris Smalling
headed England's winner from substitute Raheem Sterling's cross with
four minutes left as manager Roy Hodgson's side struggled to break
down Portugal, who had Bruno Alves sent off for a wild, high challenge
on Harry Kane in the 35th minute. Only Kyle Walker distinguished
himself although Sterling provided a lively cameo off the bench. The
main positive for Hodgson was that there were no fresh injury concerns
as he now turns his attention to the Euro 2016 opener against Russia
in Marseille on 11 June. The Squad then departed for three days of

finished the session with his left knee strapped up. He is expected to
take part fully in tomorrow's training session.
Saturday, 11 June 2016 - Following a
week of training with no injury concerns, Hodgson names the second
youngest side ever to make a Tournament Finals appearance. The young
side, led by the experienced Rooney, who was making his 112th
appearance and the first as a midfielder, made a good account of
themselves. But, England once again failed to start a major tournament
with victory as they were dominant and fully merited the lead given to
them when Eric Dier crashed a 20-yard free-kick high past keeper Igor
Akinfeev with 17 minutes left. Vasili Berezutski's stoppage-time
header gave Russia a draw they barely deserved in the Stade Velodrome.
The final whistle was the cue for more of the violence that has marred
the build-up to this fixture as the Russian fans rushed at the England
Sunday, 12 June 2016 -
UEFA has threatened to disqualify England and Russia from the

"totally unacceptable" scenes at yesterday's match.
Wednesday, 14 June 2016 -
Russia will be thrown out of Euro 2016 if their fans cause further
trouble, says European governing body Uefa. The Russians have also
been fined 150,000 euros (£119,000) following violent scenes at the
game against England in Marseille on Saturday. The suspended
disqualification and fine relate only to incidents that happened
inside the stadium. There were reports of minor disturbances between
rival fans in Lille on last night.
Thursday, 16 June 2016 -
England come from behind to beat Wales 2-1 in Lens. Two goals come
courtesy of two substitutes, Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge,
following a Garth Bale free-kick in the first half that gave the Welsh
a half-time lead.
Monday, 20 June 2016 -
Despite their best efforts, and six changes from Roy Hodgson, England
could only muster a scoreless draw against Slovakia. It is enough to
take them into the knockout phase, but not enough to win the group,
after rivals Wales beat Russia to top the group. England must take on
the runners-up of Group F.
Wednesday, 22 June 2016 - Group F
has completed, and only a last minute goal from Iceland ensures that
they progress as Group F runners-up. For much of the second half, it
was certain that Portugal would progress as runners-up, but they had
to settle with one of the best third placed teams, having completed
three draws in their group.
