England player Anthony Gordon falls off his bike and gashes chin at Euros camp

Anthony Gordon has fallen off his bike while at England’s Euro 2024 camp in Germany, gashing his chin and cutting his hands.

The Newcastle winger made his major tournament debut as a late substitute in the Three Lions’ 0-0 draw with Slovenia on Tuesday.

While the game confirmed that England would top Group C, it saw continued criticism of their performances.

However, two days later, the 23-year-old footballer turned up at training with a sizeable cut on his chin, as well as scrapes on his hands and legs.

It emerged that these occurred during a recovery session gone wrong.

Gordon was among a number of players who went on a bike ride on Wednesday, as part of their recovery.

During the ride, he took a tumble and hit the deck at their Blankenhain camp.

England and Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi said: “He fell off his bike. The boys went out on a bike ride.

“I actually wasn’t there. I heard about it and I was actually talking to him, but not paying attention to him.

“Then he turned around and I saw that massive gash on his chin.

“But he’s okay, he’s okay, but he just fell off his bike.

“It’s been a bit of a joke in camp but he’s doing well.”

This comes as Manchester City star Phil Foden temporarily left the team’s camp for the birth of his third child.

Foden and girlfriend Rebecca Cooke announced they were expecting in April.

The 24-year-old player is due to be back with the squad by Friday morning in time for Sunday’s last-16 match against Slovakia in Gelsenkirchen.
