Nathaniel Chalobah and Nathan Redmond face a race against time to be fit for England U21s’ Euro 2017 semi-final against Germany.
The Young Lions are hopeful the duo will be available but they trained away from the main group on Monday morning after coming off in Thursday’s 3-0 win over hosts Poland.
Chelsea midfielder Chalobah has a suspected groin problem while Southampton winger Redmond suffered a hamstring scare.
They are being assessed by the medical team ahead of Tuesday’s game in Tychy.
England, who are now based in Krakow, qualified for the knockout stages for the first time since 2009 after winning Group A.
They beat Slovakia and Poland, having drawn their opening game 0-0 with holders Sweden.
Head coach Aidy Boothroyd told his pre-match press conference: “We know we’ve got a very tough opponent and we have a great deal of respect for the German team and it will be a very difficult game for us as well.
“But I hope that we can execute the game plan. If we can we will have a good chance.”
The rest of Boothroyd’s side trained with Will Hughes and Jacob Murphy ready to replace Chalobah and Redmond. The pair came on for them against Poland with Norwich winger Murphy scoring the second goal.
England have won four of the 10 competitive meetings between these two sides at U21 level (Germany two, drawn four)
The semi-final is a repeat of the 2009 final which Germany won 4-0, their only previous win in the competition
England are looking for a third European title after back-to-back triumphs in 1982 and 1984.
The Young Lions have played eight semi-finals at U21 level, winning three and losing five
