Chilwell to miss World Cup with 'significant injury'

Chilwell to miss World Cup with 'significant injury'

FR Stories

Ben suffered a significant injury in the recent game against Dinamo Zagreb and is expected to miss the World Cup.

Chilwell's injury means Southgate will have to rely even more on Luke Shaw and Kieran Trippier at full-back

While Trent Alexander-Arnold is now much more likely to be included as a specialist full-back, even though he operates on the opposite wing.

The key question is whether Southgate prioritises versatility over specialist full-backs. Tyrick Mitchell and Ryan Sessegnon are the leading contenders.

Southgate already has options when it comes to versatility within the bulk of his squad. Bukayo Saka can play left-back for club and country.

Crystal Palace's Marc Guehi and Arsenal's Ben White offer versatility in the back line.

With Chilwell now missing the tournament in Qatar and with just days until Southgate names his squad, there is plenty of conversation taking place over who should replace Chilwell
