On-loan Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Tom Carroll injured his ankle in yesterday's England U-21 5-0 victory over Lithuania. Carrol started the match in the double-pivot alongside Southampton's James Ward-Prowse, but lasted only 16 minutes before suffering an ankle injury.
Gutted to have come off early tonight, hopefully it's not too bad! #fatankle— Tom Carroll (@tom_carroll92) October 15, 2013
There's no word yet on how long the injury will keep him out of action, but expect him to miss at least a couple of weeks of playing time. The should be more official news in the coming days, particularly once there's been a scan on the ankle.
Carroll has featured four times for Queens Park Rangers this season and in those matches he has been one of their best players. When he has featured for QPR, Carroll has played in the hole behind the striker, with a double pivot of Joey Barton and Jermaine Jenas behind him (ew). Carroll's loan to the Championship was a bit of a disappointment for some fans, but he's played well in his spell there and hopefully he'll return from this injury and play even more.
