England star Kyle Walker is threatened with the World Cup in Qatar. The defender was substituted early in the Manchester derby and has not been able to train since.
That would be a bitter blow to Kyle Walker! The Manchester City defender picked up a groin injury in the derby against Manchester United and is sidelined indefinitely. "He will be out for a while," said his coach Pep Guardiola on the sidelines of the Champions League game against FC Copenhagen. According to consistent English media reports, Walker has already had an operation.
But club coach Guardiola also has to worry now, Walker was also set on the right side for the Blues and has played eight competitive games so far.
It could be Walker's last major tournament. So far, the right-back has played 70 international matches for the Three Lions and has already played for the English national team at the 2014 and 2018 World Cups.
