Joe Gomez out of World Cup after ankle surgery

Joe Gomez out of World Cup after ankle surgery”

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is set to miss the upcoming Champions League final and World Cup after undergoing an operation on an ankle injury.

The defender originally sustained the problem during England's friendly win over Holland in March but returned to first-team action barely a month later.

But he suffered a recurrence of the problem against Stoke and further scans showed he needed surgery, which will rule him out of the Champions League final against Real Madrid on May 26.

The 20-year-old has featured more than 30 times for Liverpool this season, but recuperation from the surgery comes just four weeks prior to England's first World Cup warm up game, meaning that it is unlikely he will recover in time.

"However, Gomez will be ready for the start of Liverpool's preseason training schedule in July following a rehabilitation period". His early comeback from injury, which allowed Klopp to rotate his reduced squad either side of the Champions League semi-final with Roma, has come at a price and the England global will not be available for the final in Kiev on 26 May.

Gomez has three England caps to his name after making his global debut in November.

The player wrote on his Instagram account: "Gutted to confirm that my season for both club and country is over having undergone successful ankle surgery..."

Apparently Gomez had not fully recovered from the ankle problem he sustained while on worldwide duty with England against Holland in March, and he has since aggravated it in the two league games. "Thank you for all the support over the course of the season".
