“I think they’ll check him today but he feels positive, that’s the information I’ve received,” captain Andreas Granqvist is quoted as saying by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet after Wednesday’s media session.
“We hope that there is nothing serious.”Ekdal had a light gym session today before being accompanied by doctor Anders Valentin to have his foot assessed, Sweden’s press officer Staffan Stjernholm confirmed.
“He has been training in the gym while the others were out on the pitch,” he said.

“Then he and Dr. Anders Valentin went to do an x-ray. It is for safety reasons, to check.”
The 28-year-old feared he had aggravated an old injury in Tuesday’s win over Switzerland.
“It hurts a bit and it’s swollen. It’s too early to say what it’s like,” he said after the match.
“I thought I had broken my old foot injury. Then there were many thoughts that flew through my mind.”
Durmaz was the other to sit out the session with those players who did not feature against the Swiss.
“It’s a prudent precaution, he has a little feeling in his hip,” said assistant coach Peter Wettergren.
“This training today is not the one that will determine how we will play against England.”
Former Birmingham, Sunderland and Hull midfielder Sebastian Larsson admits he is relishing the last-eight tie with England.
“Of course incredibly awesome. First and foremost, it’s a quarter-final in the World Cup, what a great challenge that means in itself,” Larsson, who was suspended for the game against Switzerland after his second yellow card of the tournament, told svenskfotboll.se.
“To do it to England, where I have spent the last 17 years and played football, will be extra inspiring to see what we can do in that match.
