Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell have trained with the England squad for the first time since completing their period of quarantine.

The Chelsea duo were forced into precautionary isolation for over a week following close contact with club team-mate Billy Gilmour, who subsequently tested positive in the Scotland camp following the goalless Group D draw at Wembley on June 18.

The pair have largely had to train alone in the past week, although they been involved in some small-scale group work while maintaining social distancing and England manager Gareth Southgate has also held separate Zoom calls with the duo following his regular team meetings.

Mount and Chilwell were free from quarantine at midnight on Monday and on Wednesday trained with the players who did not feature against Germany.

There were 14 players involved in Wednesday’s outdoor session, with Jack Grealish - whose effective cameo off the bench was crucial to the win at Wembley - joining the starting XI from the Germany win for recovery work.

The England squad will travel to Rome later this week ahead of their Euro 2020 quarter-final against Ukraine on Saturday night and Mount will hope to return to the side for that game.

Chilwell is unlikely to feature, however, after Luke Shaw’s impressive display against Germany.
