Michael Carrick could have ligament damage, says Hodgson

Michael Carrick
Michael Carrick has made 34 appearances for England in a 14-year career.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick may have suffered ankle ligament damage during England's 2-0 defeat in Spain, says Roy Hodgson.

Carrick, 34, suffered the injury late on in Alicante on Friday evening and left the pitch on a stretcher.

England boss Hodgson said: "Michael has got a severely twisted ankle which normally means ligament damage.

"We won't know that of course until he's had an X-ray or a scan, but it doesn't look good."

Carrick will definitely miss Tuesday's scheduled friendly with France at Wembley.
