Ben Chilwell’s World Cup dreams may have been shattered after suffering a hamstring injury in the final minutes of Chelsea’ triumph on Wednesday, with the left-back sharing his thoughts with Mason Mount.

Following a hamstring injury sustained on Wednesday during Chelsea’ group match against Dinamo Zagreb, Ben Chilwell has become the newest World Cup question mark.

In the waning moments of Chelsea’ 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge, the England left-back pulled up holding his left hamstring and was forced to leave the field with assistance from two of the London club’ medical staff.

And as he left the pitch, television cameras caught Chilwell telling his Chelsea and England teammate Mason Mount that his hamstring had ‘popped’.


When asked about the severity of Chilwell’ injury, Chelsea head coach Graham Potter said: “It doesn’t look positive. ‘It’ a hamstring. We will have to scan it and see how it is. It’ a blow for us on an otherwise positive evening I think. It’s a blow to see him pull up like that, it’s not a great sight.

“So fingers crossed when we get the scan it isn’t bad, it can be not severe, but we have to have fingers crossed at the moment. But clearly, we’re disappointed.”

Chilwell’ availability for England’ World Cup campaign, which begins on November 21 against Iran in their opening match in Group B, is now seriously questioned.

Earlier on Wednesday, Tottenham confirmed that Heung-Min Son will undergo surgery on a fracture around his eye, putting his hopes of playing at the World Cup with South Korea in jeopardy.

Diogo Jota of Liverpool has already been ruled out of Portugal’ World Cup run due to a calf ailment, and Raphael Varane of Manchester United is battling a hamstring to make France’ World Cup squad. N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba are already absent.
