ANKLE INJURY ENDS LEWIN'S WORLD CUP
England physio Gary Lewin is to return home from the World Cup, after suffering a fracture and dislocation of his ankle while celebrating Daniel Sturridge's first-half equaliser in yesterday morning's (Singapore time) 2-1 defeat against Italy.
The Three Lions' equaliser came just moments after Claudio Marchisio had given the Azzurri a goal advantage in their Group D encounter in Manaus.
Sturridge celebrated his close-range strike in his normal style, while Lewin jumped off the bench and injured himself in the process and left the field on a stretcher (above).
"That was a very sad moment for us," England boss Roy Hodgson said.
"In celebrating the goal, he jumped up, landed on a water bottle and dislocated his ankle.
"It was very painful. He was taken to hospital... but it's the end of the World Cup for Gary." - PA SPORT.
