Ferdinand limps out of the 2-2 draw with Sweden
Rio Ferdinand is expected to be fit to face Ecuador on Sunday after getting the all-clear on a groin injury.

The England centre-half was forced to limp out of the draw against Sweden and had to be replaced by Sol Campbell.

But a scan has shown there is no problem and Ferdinand should return for the second round game in Stuttgart.

An FA spokesman said: "The scan was clear. Rio will continue to be assessed by the medical staff on a daily basis ahead of Sunday's match with Ecuador."
