Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell was unable to link up with the England team for their 2-1 win over Belgium due to illness and England boss Gareth Southgate has given an update on the left-back.

According to Southgate, Chilwell has returned to training with the squad ahead of England’s clash with Denmark on Wednesday, although he is still being assessed by the England medical staff.

“Ben reported to the hotel today,” Southgate said after the 2-1 win over Belgium in the Nations League.

“He did a training session on his own.

“We’ve just got to assess where he’s at because he hasn’t been able to train through the week.

“So, there’s a little bit of assessment needed over the next couple of days but he is with the group now.”
