England defender Rio Ferdinand is still considered a fitness doubt for Sunday’s second-round match against Ecuador because of his groin strain.
The centre-back trained on his own on Friday, with Sol Campbell set to play should Ferdinand fail to recover.
Meanwhile, full-back Gary Neville is thought unlikely to play.
Neville – who has missed two games with a calf injury – also played a limited role in training and Jamie Carragher is expected to play again.
Meanwhile, England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson must decide whether to stick to his favoured 4-4-2 formation or play with only Wayne Rooney up front.
If he plays two strikers Peter Crouch will get the nod but if he goes for a 4-5-1 decision he may use Steven Gerrard in an advanced position to support Rooney.
Ecuador will be at full strength after coach Luis Suarez rested several of his players for the 3-0 defeat at the hands of Germany.
Agustin Delgado and Carlos Tenorio, who have both scored twice in the World Cup, will start up front.
