England Top Group C at Euro 2024 with 1-0 Victory Over Serbia, Trippier Injury Concern

England have taken the lead in Group C of the Euro 2024 tournament after a narrow 1-0 victory over Serbia. The win sees the Three Lions move to the top of the group, but there are concerns over the fitness of defender Kieran Trippier.

The match-winning goal was scored by an England player, but the real focus after the game was on Trippier’s condition. The Newcastle United full-back went down towards the end of the match with no one around him, raising fears that he may have picked up an injury.

“Just a bit of cramp really. I mean, that’s his first 90 minutes in months and to play the way he did just shows what an incredible character he is for us,” Southgate told talkSPORT.

With first-choice left-back Luke Shaw still working his way back to full fitness, Trippier’s availability for the crucial second group stage match against Denmark in Frankfurt on Thursday will be crucial. The 33-year-old has spoken about the team’s determination to secure all three points and seal their place in the knockout stages.

“We’re not thinking about a point,” said Trippier. “We want to go into the Denmark game and we want to win. That’s our only focus. We don’t want to focus on anything else further than that. We know Denmark are a very good side, good quality players, so now the most important thing is we recover as a team and then we focus on Denmark.”

With the group stage well underway, fans can look forward to more thrilling action in the coming days.
