Vardy sustained a slight groin strain as England edged Colombia in the Round of 16 on Tuesday.

The injury prevented him from taking the crucial fifth penalty in the shoot-out which Eric Dier clinically put away.

Reports in the UK media say Vardy was given a post-match injection to settle the injury, but he is still recovering despite missing Friday’s training.
