Things aren't looking good for Redders, take a look at this report below taken from Skysports


Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp is facing the possibility of more injury heartache with England, less than a week before Kevin Keegan names his squad for Euro 2000.
Redknapp is due to see a specialist after suffering a knee problem which forced him to
pull out early from England's training session at Bisham Abbey on Thursday.
The 26-year-old has the problem in the same knee on which he needed surgery after damaging it during the second leg of the `Battle of Britain' with Scotland at Wembley
in November.

England coach Keegan was trying to play down the blow, calling it a "a slight problem" in Thursday's press conference at the team's Burnham Beeches headquarters. Redknapp will be concerned, especially given his dreadful record of injuries while on international duty. He picked up a serious ankle injury during Euro 96 against Scotland and inflamed it again in the international with South Africa at Old Trafford in 1997.

It was similarly an ankle problem, which ended his hopes of being part of Glenn Hoddle's final squad for the 1998 World Cup finals in France.

Keegan said: "Jamie felt a slight problem with his knee. He pulled out of the training session with five minutes to go. We will have him looked at. He is going to see the specialist and I will tell you more tomorrow. It's the same knee he had the operation on.
"He has had bad luck with injuries when with England but lets wait until tomorrow," he concluded hopefully.
