Another England star ruled out of the World Cup through injury


Ben Chilwell has confirmed via his social media platforms that he will miss the World Cup through injury.

Chilwell injured his hamstring in the midweek Champions League clash against Dinamo Zagreb and was forced off.

Chilwell wrote: “Following my ACL injury I worked so hard to make sure I was ready for the World Cup. It has always been a dream of mine. Unfortunately, this won’t be possible following my scan results. I’ll do all I can to get back playing for Chelsea ASAP. Thanks for the messages of support”

For my money, he will be a big miss for England. He’s probably England’s best left-back at the moment and they will go to the World Cup with Luke Shaw and someone to cover, maybe Kieran Trippier who has been utilised there before.

We wish Ben a speedy recovery after his heartbreaking news.
