Roy Hodgson will assess the fitness of key midfielder Scott Parker when the England squad assembles on Wednesday to launch their preparations for Euro 2012.

Parker, who skippered his country against Holland in February, was troubled by an Achilles injury during the latter part of the domestic campaign with Tottenham. He will be checked by the England medical team when reporting with the other players at their Manchester base.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp cast doubts last week over whether Parker would be fit for the Euros, while Hodgson was more confident about his chances when he announced his squad a week ago but will not make a final decision until May 29 - the date the final Euro squad needs to be submitted.
