Sunday 15 June 2014
England physio Gary Lewin was carried off on a stretcher after suffering a dislocated ankle as he celebrated Daniel Sturridge's first-half equaliser against Italy in Manaus.
The Three Lions' leveller came just moments after Claudio Marchisio had given the Azzurri a goal advantage in their World Cup Group D encounter.
Sturridge celebrated his close-range strike in his normal style, while Lewin jumped off the bench and injured himself in the process.
The physio left the field on a stretcher after a short break in play, with the team's Twitter official feed, england, swiftly confirming the severity of the injury.
"England physio Gary Lewin was injured during celebrations for england's goal," the post said. "He has dislocated his ankle. Get well soon Gary #3Lions"
