England have a clean bill of health ahead of their first World Cup semi-final in 28 years.

The Three Lions take on Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday looking to earn a place in Sunday's final and are 13/10 favourites to win in 90 minutes with Sky Bet with their opponents 13/5 and the draw 21/10. England are 8/13 to reach the final via any route with Croatia 5/4.

Gareth Southgate put his squad through their paces at the Spartak Zelenogorsk stadium on Tuesday morning ahead of this afternoon's flight to the Russian capital.

Jordan Henderson was a fitness worry with a tight hamstring but trained fully alongside Jamie Vardy, who missed Saturday's win over Sweden with a groin injury.

Despite the prospect of England reaching a first World Cup final since lifting the trophy on home soil in 1966, the squad looked relaxed during the open section of their morning session.

There was a surprise inclusion among the 23 players as a rubber chicken was thrown around in the early part of training.

With every player set to be at his disposal, it remains to be seen if Southgate sticks with the same line-up that started against both Colombia and Sweden to reach the last four.
