Last updated : 27 May 2010 By Daryl Baker

Sunderland striker Darren Bent has today been given the go ahead by England's physios making him available to face Japan this coming Sunday.

Newspapers and other media sources had a field day with rumours of Darren Bent having pulled a hamstring which are now shown as wide of the mark.  

Bent was left out of England's 3-1 win over Mexico as a precaution due to stiffing in his hamstring, now it is down to the striker to show what he can do providing he gets the service and time.
