Tottenham winger Townsend set to miss World Cup

Tottenham winger Andros Townsend now looks likely to miss the World Cup in Brazil this summer, according to BBC Sport.


Andros Townsend


The 22-year-old appeared as a late sub for Spurs during their 1-0 win over Stoke recently, but left the stadium wearing a protective boot amid fears he had sustained a potentially serious injury. The midfielder is set to undergo surgery on Thursday after being diagnosed with damaged ligaments, and is now set to miss up to 10 weeks of action – a timescale which covers the majority of the World Cup schedule.


The news comes only hours after it was reported that Roy Hodgson will name his 23-man World Cup squad on 12th May, with final squad to be confirmed on 2nd June.


Townsend made his England debut in October, and marked the occasion with a goal as England cruised past Montenegro 4-1 at Wembley, and has continued to impress in the Premier League despite not starting a Premier League game since the 1-0 defeat to local rivals Arsenal in March.
