Football News Update: John Stones Rejoins England Training Ahead of Euro 2024 Opener

In a crucial development for England’s Euro 2024 campaign, defender John Stones has returned to training after recovering from a bout of illness. The 30-year-old Manchester City star had been isolated in his hotel room on Wednesday in an effort to prevent the sickness bug from spreading to his teammates.

England are set to kick off their Euro 2024 journey against Serbia in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, on Sunday. Stones, a key figure for the national team in the past three major tournaments, has completed a full 90 minutes only once in the last two months. However, he did feature for 45 minutes in England’s final warm-up match, a defeat against Iceland on Friday.

“With his defensive partner, Harry Maguire, sidelined due to a calf injury, Stones’ return to full fitness is a significant boost for manager Gareth Southgate.”

The squad will also face Denmark on June 20 and Slovenia on June 25 in their other Group C fixtures. Fans and pundits alike will be closely monitoring Stones’ progress as England look to secure a strong start to their Euro 2024 campaign and make a deep run in the tournament.
