According to Chelsea, Ben Chilwell is “expected” to miss the Qatar 2022 World Cup. Towards the conclusion of the Blues’ 2-1 Champions League victory over Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday, Chilwell limped off with a hamstring injury.
He was clearly in pain as he shook his head at teammate Mason Mount. From November 20 through December 18, the World Cup will be held.
Ben has had a hamstring scan after suffering an injury in our most recent game against Dinamo Zagreb, according to a statement from Chelsea. Results indicate that Ben has a serious injury, and the defender is regrettably anticipated to miss the World Cup.
Ben will now start working with the club’s medical staff on a recovery program.
Due to a torn cruciate ligament injury that necessitated surgery, Chilwell missed the majority of the previous season.
In the early going of the new season, he gradually accrued more playing time by entering games as a substitute, and more recently, he started games for the first time in nearly a year.
Joe Cole, a former Chelsea and England great, expressed disappointment over Chilwell’s injury.
“Ben Chilwell saw a terrible scene, Cold told BT Sport. “I feel his suffering ” In the latter stages of my profession, I ran into issues. It’s terribly sad. The moment it occurs, all you can think about is how near the World Cup is.
“Usually, you can only count on being off the field for two to three weeks if you have a hamstring issue. It’s incredibly difficult. I feel so bad for him.”
Prior to this unfortunate development, the 25-year-old would almost surely have been a member of England’s World Cup roster and would have even been Gareth Southgate’s top left-back option.
Luke Shaw or Kieran Trippier, who can play on either wing, may now be selected by Southgate to start at left-back.
Iran, the United States, and Wales make up England’s World Cup Group B teammates.
