Iceland mercurial midfielder and playmaker, Gylfi Sigurdsson is injured and is set to see a specialist amid concerns his season has been ended by a knee injury which could also put his World Cup participation in serious jeopardy.
The Iceland international played the full 90 minutes in the 2-0 win of Everton over Brighton at Goodison Park on Saturday but news has emerged that he might have damaged his ligaments during the match.
According to The Guardian newspaper, the popular British tabloid, ligament damage by the Icelandic international is a real possibility and the former Swansea City ace, therefore, may face a few months on the sidelines, making him doubtful for Iceland’s historic campaign in Russia this summer.
Sigurdsson, who managed to finish the game against Brighton on Saturday despite the injury, will know by the end of the week whether surgery is required. Iceland’s first World Cup game is against Argentina on June 16, before facing Nigeria and Croatia over the following ten days.
