Strike for England days before the start of the World Cup – Football world – World Cup

Ben Chilwell will not be in England’s squad for the World Cup in Qatar, the Chelsea full-back has announced after a scan revealed significant tendon damage. He suffered the injury against Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday.

Chilwell left Stamford Bridge on crutches after making 13 appearances in all competitions.

“I put a lot of effort into getting back in shape after the previous injury because I really wanted to play at the World Cup. I’ve always dreamed of it. Unfortunately, however, this will not be possible after the scan results. I will do everything in my power to get back playing for Chelsea as soon as possible,” Chilwell wrote on his Twitter account.

England will also be without team-mate Reece James, who will be out for the next eight weeks with a knee injury. Kyle Walker and Calvin Phillips are also recovering but there is a chance they could make the World Finals squad.
