Ben Chilwell's message on his social networks.
Chilwell, who was usually called up by Gareth Southgate, had to leave the field of play assisted by doctors after feeling a pull in the back of the thigh of your left leg. He made several gestures of pain, threw himself to the ground and needed help to leave the grass of Stamford Bridge by his own foot. “I will do my best to play for Chelsea again as soon as possible. Thanks for the messages of support”, he added in his message.
This footballer emerged from Huddersfield, who stood out at Leicester City before landing at Stamford Bridge , had undergone surgery for a torn cruciate ligament in November 2021. That operation sidelined him from activity for several months and his return has been a nightmare.
The loss of Chilwell is one more problem for a Southgatewho in recent weeks has also seen other important players in his defense fall, such as Kyle Walker, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Reece James, Chilwell's teammate in the Chelsea which has already been ruled out. For their part, Alexander-Arnold and Walker could still make it but they are working against the clock to do so.
