Injury could rule Spurs defender out of World Cup

Steve Bardens

Yet another Tottenham Hotspur player that was likely for the England 30-man squad is in danger of missing out.

At the rate he's going, Roy Hodgson's England squad is just going to be the Under-21 squad. Andros Townsend was ruled out of the World Cup earlier this week with an ankle injury that will keep him from training until late July, and now it looks like another Tottenham Hotspur player could miss out.

Kyle Walker's status is very up in the air due to a pelvic injury, and Hodgson talked about it.

"We haven't been told for certain that he will be out for the next six to 10 weeks but we are concerned. I know he has had another injection. We are waiting to find out whether that helps. He has not been fit for a long time."

Six to 10 weeks, huh? So we got more information on Walker's status from a throwaway Hodgson quote than we were ever going to get from the official club website. Lovely!

If Walker is out for another six weeks, there's a decent chance that he could be picked in Hodgson's World Cup squad, though it'll be a bit unlikely. If he's going to be out for any longer than six weeks, he's absolutely out of contention to go to Brazil.
