But besides USMNT duo Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson, plus DenmarkвЂ™s Rasmus Kristensen, who have been given time off off post Qatar, there are other notable absentees. Striker Patrick BamfordвЂ™s endless injury problems now have him undergoing a minor groin operation in Germany and left-back Junior Firpo (groin) is due to arrive. Illness has forced goalkeepers Illan Meslier and Kristofer Klaesson to remain at home. Defender Diego Llorente has had surgery on a hand problem in Murcia whilst on tour.

When I go and watch the players train on arriving it will be interesting to see how those who have not featured for a while like midfielder Adam Forshaw, Luis Sinisterra and Stuart Dallas are recovering from their injuries.
