King comes through training unscathed

27 June 2010 09:24
Ledley King is available for selection on Sunday when England face Germany in a crucial World Cup last-16 encounter. The Tottenham defender was able to play a full part in England training on Saturday after recovering from a groin injury. England boss Fabio Capello confirmed that all 23 players trained in Rustenburg ahead of Sunday's clash in Bloemfontein. Capello used John Terry and Matthew Upson as his centre-back pairing against Slovenia on Wednesday but could bring in King or Jamie Carragher, who is back from suspension. Wayne Rooney and Aaron Lennon are both fit after recovering from ankle knocks. King limped out of the 1-1 draw against against the US at half time and was replaced by Carragher for the second half with the Liverpool stalwart keeping his place for the dismal goalless stalemate with Algeria. However, a second yellow card in that game ruled him out of England's final group game against Slovenia.
