Tottenham fullback Kyle Walker is battling to be fit for the World Cup.
Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood revealed that Walker, who is competing with Liverpool's Glen Johnson for the right back spot, has been suffering from a pelvic injury and has to be nursed through matches.
"The medical team are assessing him and just making sure they can get him through this period.
"The boy wants to soldier on and play through it at the moment which is credit to him. It is a pelvic problem. It is something that might need attention.
"I have had it myself. It's nagging and it is always there at the back of your mind. If he can manage it, he wants to continue to play."
