Jordan Henderson is an injury doubt for England's World Cup semi-final against Croatia with a tight hamstring, Sky Sports News understands.

France and Belgium will face off in the other last-four clash on Tuesday in Saint Petersburg.

The squad resume training on Monday for the first time since Saturday's quarter-final win over Sweden at their Repino base after having a rest day on Sunday.

Capello struggled to find a goalkeeper he trusted during his England reign, famously dropping former West Ham 'keeper Rob Green after he made a massive error in the opening game of the 2010 World Cup, and he has hailed the performances of the current number one Jordan Pickford.

"Yeah [regular contact] after games normally, and he's so happy", Henderson said prior to the victory over Sweden.

England batsman Jason Roy however could not repeat his captain's feat and fluffed his lines - let's just say the pressure got to him. "Come on!' So he's buzzing that we're doing well".

The Reds will be looking to mount a serious Premier League title challenge next season as they aim to try and win their first trophy since Klopp's appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.
