Hoddle beset with more injury worries
Thursday 06 February 1997
The Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, and Liverpool's uncapped defender, Dominic Matteo, are new worries for Hoddle as his 24-man squad assembled at Burnham Beeches last night.
Both have minor knocks and although they are likely to miss the opening training sessions at Bisham Abbey today they are expected to be back to full fitness by the weekend.
More serious worries are Wright's Highbury team-mates Tony Adams and David Seaman, along with Paul Ince, Rob Lee and Paul Gascoigne.
They are being assessed by Hoddle's medical staff over the next 24 hours and first indications are that England do not expect to lose anyone at this early point in the build-up.
