WC update

Sebastien Bassong and Benoit Assou-Ekotto are the next Spurs players in World Cup action this afternoon.

The defenders are in the Cameroon squad and the Indomitable Lions begin their tournament against Japan. It's a 3pm kick-off in Bloemfontein.

Sebastien is pictured above training with the squad at the Free State Stadium on Sunday night.

Meanwhile, the FA have told the media that Ledley King will be monitored on a 'day-to-day' basis after picking up a groin injury in England's opener against the USA.

The problem forced Ledley out of the action at half-time in the 1-1 draw on Saturday. He was replaced by Jamie Carragher and the Liverpool man looks most likely to replace Ledley for Friday's match against Algeria.

"Ledley has a groin muscle strain. He will be assessed on a day-to-day basis," said a Football Association spokesman.

The rest of the players have trained this morning and we've pictures of Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Michael Dawson above.

We've also pictures of 'Crouchy' and 'Daws' playing golf on a day off on Sunday.
