Sun 23 May 2021 | 15:36

Burnley boss Sean Dyche confirmed England goalkeeper Nick Pope will have knee surgery next week, and his place in Euro 2020 squad could be in doubt.


Unfortunately, Nick is going to need a minor operation on his knee this week,

" Sean Dyche confirmed to BT Sport.

"That's not ideal for him or us and possibly for the England team. We'll wait and see. It's nothing too serious, we don't think, but it still needed doing.

"He was trying to get right for this game to give it a test but didn't quite come through in training, so he and we have had to make a judgement call on that.

"It's mainly down to him and he knows what he's got to do. He'll have that (the operation) done this week and hopefully it will settle down for a quick recovery."
