Luke Shaw was once again absent from England training on Saturday as the Three Lions prepared for their final Euro 2024 group stage match.

All eyes have been on Gareth Southgate and his team following their disappointing draw against Denmark, with one game left for the Three Lions to impress before the knockout stages.

Southgate and captain Harry Kane held a deep conversation as the players left for training at the Three Lions’ Blankenhain base on Saturday, with 25 of the 26 players away to prepare.

The absent player was once again Luke Shaw, who has not yet played any minutes in the tournament as he continues to try to demonstrate his fitness after his injury.

The defender was expected to be able to play against Denmark but remains unavailable and so far it appears unlikely he will be able to play against Slovenia on Tuesday.

The Three Lions goalkeepers were the first to take to the training pitch on Saturday, and the outfield players were not far behind.

Jordan Pickford, Tom Heaton and Dean Henderson were all caught with goalkeeping coach Martyn Margetson leading England conceding their first goal of the tournament against Denmark thanks to a long-range shot from Morten Hjulmand.

Photos from the shoot saw the likes of Adam Wharton and Conor Galagher struggling to make the step into the Three Lions’ midfield.

Southgate admitted after the draw with Denmark that Trent Alexander-Arnold had been used in the position as an “experiment”, which is now likely to be over after two early substitutions.

Gallagher was the replacement in both games, although calls have emerged to include Wharton due to his positive intent.

More to follow.
