England manager Fabio Capello has been boosted by a clean bill of health ahead of his side's opening World Cup match against the United States on Saturday.
All 23 of Capello's squad trained at the Rustenburg stadium on Friday evening following concerns over James Milner and Ledley King's fitness.
Milner had missed three days' training due to a virus but took part in the session amid rumours that the Aston Villa midfielder could be handed a surprise start versus the Americans.
Tottenham centre-back King, who suffers with a long-standing knee problem, also trained with his team-mates and is expected to partner John Terry on Saturday.
Capello has confirmed he has already decided on his starting XI for the clash in Rustenburg, but the Italian is keeping his cards close to his chest.
Debate still surrounds who will start in goal as there is little to choose between David James, Robert Green and Joe Hart.
Furthermore, speculation is growing that Jamie Carragher could play at right-back instead of the more attacking Glen Johnson as Capello plots a winning start to the tournament in South Africa.
