And theThe World Cup in Qatar begins in 20 days, and injuries are increasingly worrying national teams. The last player to be substituted is Bukayo SakaAnd it became Southgate’s latest concern.
The Arsenal striker tried to escape but could not. The collision with Nottingham Forest defender Renan Lodi was very painful. The Arsenal star had to be substituted for the match after a confrontation with Renan Lodi.
The 21-year-old player He limped out to be substituted in the 27th minute. Arsenal players rushed to rest their team-mate as he received treatment for his left leg. Now you will have to find out if it is a sprain or some other type of injury and also its severity.
From the start I was lame, but I don’t see beyond that
“I hope not,” Arteta replied when asked if Saka doubted the World Cup. “It was a bad kick. From the start he was limping, but I can’t see beyond that. Let’s see how he is in the next few days. He was kicked a few times and didn’t feel comfortable,” added the Arsenal manager.
Worried about injury in England
It was the first loss in the selection of England Reese James. The Chelsea winger was injured in a Champions League match against Milan, and after subsequent medical evaluations, it was confirmed that he would not make it to the World Cup. “He will undergo a rehabilitation program and is expected to be discharged for eight weeks,” he added. It was a “blues” statement.
However, the player commented two days ago that Chelsea’s medical staff had not given him a percentage of his chances of going to the World Cup. It depends on how you feel when the time comes and how stable your knee is. “It will be very difficult. It is an injury that can take a long time and come at a bad time, but I am doing my best and hopefully that will suffice, and if not, I have at least tried everything.”
Another question for Gareth Southgate’s team is Kyle Walker. Manchester City Suite He has had surgery to correct a groin problem and it is very likely that he will not recover in time. At the moment, this is not an official release.
for this part, Calvin Phillips underwent surgery on his shoulder in September. Pep Guardiola reported, Friday, that the Manchester City player will not play again before the World Cup. However, there is hope that he can make it to Qatar: “He says he feels good. His shoulder movement is perfect. He started training with the ball. He has to avoid contact with his teammates, but he is doing well. We are amazed at how quickly it has developed.”
With Reese James, Walker’s agent and Calvin Phillips recovering from injuries, Gareth Southgate is hoping Saka isn’t too serious. And England can participate for the first time in Qatar against Iran, in the second group, scheduled for November 21.
