Duo miss friendly

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

The 23-year-old could yet link up with Roy Hodgson's England squad as they finalise preparations for the midweek Wembley clash.

Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen will not recover from a back injury in time to line up against England either.

Bruce backs Hull duo to make Brazil

Hull manager believes defender Curtis Davies was unlucky to miss out of the latest England friendly but believes he or Tom Huddlestone could still gatecrash the World Cup squad.

In my experience there's always one that comes from nowhere and goes to the World Cup and it could be one of ours.

For Curtis and Tom to be even linked with it is good for them and they've got to stick with it and keep performing, then who knows?

You've just got to keep at it but it's all about one person and that's Roy Hodgson.

Management's all about opinions. In my opinion, Curtis would be in there above Caulker but I've worked with Curtis for the last six months, so I know what he brings to the table.

– Hull manager Steve Bruce.
