Tottenham midfielder Parker fit for England training

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Scott Parker has handed England manager Roy Hodgson a boost ahead of Euro 2012 by recovering from an Achilles injury in time to train this week, the BBC has reported.



Parker missed three of Spurs’ last four Premier League matches with the injury, which threatened to rule him out of the summer tournament. The former Chelsea midfielder’s only appearance in that last quartet of league games came as an 89th minute substitute against Fulham, Tottenham’s last game of the season.


Hodgson has until May 29 to confirm his final 23-man squad and there was a danger that Parker would not be in it due to his on-going injury, but after returning to training ahead of England’s friendly with Norway, the 31-year-old could be fit to travel to Poland and Ukraine.


Parker captained England in their last match, against the Netherlands, after being appointed to the position by caretaker manager Stuart Pearce, but he was overlooked by Hodgson for the role on a full-time basis, with Steven Gerrard getting the nod instead.
