Southampton defender Bertrand misses England training

Ryan Bertrand did not take part in England's training session at St George's Park on Tuesday.

The Southampton defender missed the session to be assessed by team doctors for a knock he received in Sunday's 3-2 win over Liverpool.

It is believed the left-back is in doubt for Friday's international friendly with Germany in Berlin but will be given time to recover ahead of the trip.

If Bertrand does not get up for the Olympiastadion clash with Die Mannschaft, he is expected to take part in Tuesday's meeting with Holland at Wembley.

Roy Hodgson has Tottenham Hotspur's Danny Rose as cover at left-back if Bertrand happens to miss.
