Three Lions defender was kept separate to squad

Stones back training after illness

2024/06/13 12:26

England defender John Stones has returned to training after a bout of illness.

The Manchester City centre-back was quarantined from the rest of the Three Lions squad on Wednesday in an attempt to prevent the sickness bug spreading to his team-mates.

England are set to kick off their Euro 2024 campaign this Sunday against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. 

Stones enters the tournament short on game time having completed 90 minutes only once in the past two months, although he did feature for 45 minutes of England's final warm-up defeat by Iceland at Wembley on Friday.

A key man for Gareth Southgate's England at the past three major tournaments. Stones will be without his regular defensive partner Harry Maguire at Euro 2024 after the Manchester United's withdrawal from the squad through injury. 

After facing the Serbs, England will take on Denmark on 20 June and then Slovenia on 25 June in their remaining Group C games.

Glad to hear that John Stones is back in training for England after being ill. Hopefully he can regain his form and help the team in their Euro 2024 campaign. It's a shame that he won't have his regular defensive partner Harry Maguire, but I have faith that he will still perform well. Good luck, Stonesy!

Glad to hear Stones is back in training! Hopefully he gets some playing time before Euro 2024. Shame about Maguire's injury though, will definitely be missed. Come on England!

Great to see Stones back in training for England! He's been a key player for us in the past and it's exciting to have him fit and ready for Euro 2024. Hopefully he can form a solid partnership with whoever replaces Maguire. Let's go Three Lions!
