Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has assured Fabio Capello that Aaron Lennon will be fit for the World Cup.
The Spurs winger has been sidelined for the last two months with a tear in his groin muscle and has come unscathed through his first sprinting session at training on Friday.
Redknapp said: “Aaron has been working on his fitness and should be OK for the World Cup.
“If Fabio Capello rings and asks me about Aaron, I’ll say he should be in good shape for the summer.
“That is great news for England especially after the loss of David Beckham.
“Aaron can become a major player for England in the World Cup finals. But before that we need him for our run-in.
“We have an FA Cup semi-final coming up then our remaining league games as we push for fourth place.
“So first and foremost we want Aaron back for us – and hopefully some good games under his belt will then get him in great shape for the World Cup with England.”
