Milner misses England training
James Milner was the most significant absentee from training today as Fabio Capello's men stepped up their preparations for Saturday's Group C opener against the United States on Saturday.
With their final warm-up match out of the way, Capello can start to work out the final details of his intended starting line-up.
Milner does not seem likely to be in it, and after reporting a slight temperature was confined to the team hotel this morning.
Chelsea duo Ashley Cole and Joe Cole spent the morning in the gym, the former as a matter of course the day after a game, the latter as the only England player to complete the full 90 minutes yesterday.
They were joined by Ledley King, who does most of his training in the gym, while Shaun Wright-Phillips took it easy after picking up a knock to his knee.
The remainder completed a light session, including David James, who played no part yesterday and seems highly unlikely to figure against the United States.
Gareth Barry was also there following his revelation yesterday that he will train with the main England squad from now on, even though he has also ruled out an appearance in Rustenburg on Saturday night.
Wayne Rooney was an obvious source of attention too, having attracted the displeasure of referee Jeff Selogilwe for a four-letter attack during yesterday's 3-0 win.
