Ben Chilwell suffers hamstring injury weeks before World Cup

England full-back Ben Chilwell is now a major doubt for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar after hobbling off with an apparent hamstring injury in Chelsea’s UEFA Champions League win over Dinamo Zagreb.

Chilwell was widely expected to fight with Man Utd’s Luke Shaw for a place in the starting XI in Qatar, but his injury has thrown his place in the sqaud at all into doubt.

The full-back pulled up in the dying embers of Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Zagreb – a win which saw them top Group E ahead of AC Milan – and was visibly distraught upon realising that his World Cup hopes are hanging in the balance.
