England’s first training session in South Africa yielded both good and bad news. On a positive note, key midfielder Gareth Barry looks to be progressing well in his recovery from an ankle injury sustained late last season, and seems certain to feature in the World Cup.

Barry has started training with the team today and he is improving every day,” manager Fabio Capello said on "He is getting better and better and will train again this afternoon. We know we have to be careful with him.”

Unfortunately, skipper Rio Ferdinand wasn’t so lucky in the first training session, as the Italian manager reported, “Other bad news is that Rio hurt his knee in the last moment of training in a tackle. He has gone to the hospital for a scan and we hope he will be ok."
