England midfielder Dele Alli has not returned to training and is likely to miss their second World Cup Group G game against Panama on Sunday.

The Tottenham player, 22, has missed training with a thigh injury picked up during Monday’s 2-1 win over Tunisia.

Pictures of assistant manager Steve Holland’s training notes seemed to indicate Ruben Loftus-Cheek would replace him in England’s starting XI.

Sunday’s match in Nizhny Novgorod is live on BBC One from 12:10 BST.

World Cup debutants Panama were beaten 3-0 by Belgium in their opening match.
