Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Theo Walcott is available for England's final Euro 2012 group game against Ukraine on Tuesday.
The winger had been doubtful for the crucial clash in Donetsk after leaving Sunday's training session early with a tight hamstring.
That had been a precautionary measure and he has now been passed fit 24 hours ahead of kick-off at the Donbass Arena.
Walcott will be hoping to start against the co-hosts after making a stunning impact off the substitutes' bench in England's previous clash with Sweden.


The Three Lions had been trailing 2-1 when the Arsenal winger was introduced but he turned the game on its head by scoring the equaliser and then setting up Danny Welbeck for the winning goal.
That 3-2 success means England only need a point against Ukraine to ensure progression to the quarter-finals, and they will be in confident mood as they also prepare to welcome Wayne Rooney back from a two-match suspension.
Roy Hodgson faces a tough decision over who to leave out to accommodate Rooney, with Andy Carroll also scoring against Sweden.
Walcott's availability increases Hodgson's attacking options and he could dislodge James Milner from the right-wing role.
