Chilwell to miss World Cup with 'significant injury'

Ben Chilwell will miss the 2022 World Cup after suffering a significant injury in Chelsea's win over Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday.

Chilwell pulled up with a hamstring problem chasing the ball in stoppage time of the win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Earlier on Saturday, a Chelsea statement read: "Following the injury sustained in our recent game against Dinamo Zagreb, Ben has undergone a scan on his hamstring.

"Results show that Ben has suffered a significant injury and the defender is unfortunately expected to miss the World Cup.

"Ben will now begin a rehabilitation programme with the club's medical department."

The England defender, who has had bad luck with injuries in the past, did manage to get to his feet and played the final seconds of the match, but he had to be carried across to the tunnel at the full-time whistle and left the stadium on crutches.
