LONDON - England midfielder Frank Lampard faces a scan to determine if he will be fit to feature at Euro 2012 after the Chelsea star suffered a thigh injury during training.
Lampards injury is serious enough for England manager Roy Hodgson to have put Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson on stand-by in case the 33-year-old is unable to recover in time.
Lampard, who had only just joined up with the England squad after an extended break following Chelseas Champions League final victory, will be assessed by Englands medical team on Thursday before any decision is taken about his participation.
Frank Lampard has today pulled up in training with a thigh injury, a statement on the FAs website confirmed on Wednesday.
He will be assessed by the medical team and scanned tomorrow. Jordan Henderson has been put on standby notice as cover whilst Lampard continues to be monitored.
Englands first group match against France is just 12 days away and Hodgson can ill-afford any more injury problems in midfield after Manchester Citys Gareth Barry was ruled out of the Euros with a tear of his lower abdomen.
