Sherwood: Walker not fit for England

Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino welcomed Luke Shaw's call up to the England squad.

Kyle Walker will not be ready for England's friendly against Denmark on Wednesday night, according to Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood.

The 23-year-old missed Spurs' 1-0 victory over Cardiff on Sunday following hip trouble, but could yet link up with Roy Hodgson's squad as they finalise preparations for the midweek Wembley clash.

However, Sherwood believes the pacy full-back will not have recovered in time for the national side, despite returning to club training.

"Kyle won't be fit to play for England; he's not fit to play here today [against Cardiff] so he won't be fit for England either,'' he said.

"I'm not sure but he probably will [link up with England] as they will be training at our complex in the early part of the week.

"We're just hoping to nurse him back to fitness for next week, so we'll see how that goes."

Sherwood is hopeful that Walker will be available for the trip to Chelsea next Saturday, while he also confirmed that Christian Eriksen will not recover from a back injury in time to line up for Denmark against the Three Lions.

Walker's absence makes it almost certain that Glen Johnson will start at right-back for Hodgson's men against the Danes, winning his 50th cap.
