Speaking ITV Sport after the match, Southgate said: “We are going to have a little look.

“It is obviously not good to see him having to come off in the way he did, but we will have to assess him over the next 24 hours.

“I think (it’s his) thigh, but the medical team is still assessing it.”

“We’ll just have to see, it’s not a good sign to see him walk off in the way that he did, so we’ll know more in the next 24 or 48 hours. We don’t know the full extent, so the last thing you want is to see him come off in the way that he did.”
