Redknapp: Lennon to be fit for England friendly

CHIGWELL, England - Injured England winger Aaron Lennon should be available for next month's friendly with Egypt, Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp said on Friday.

"He should be fit by then," Redknapp told reporters at the Spurs training ground referring to the World Cup warm-up match against the African champions at Wembley Stadium on March 3.

Lennon has been out with a groin injury since the Premier League win over West Ham United at White Hart Lane on December 28 and the club had feared he might need a hernia operation.
