Iceland midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson is to see a specialist amid concerns his season has been ended by a knee injury which could also put his World Cup participation in doubt.
The Iceland international played the full 90 minutes of the 2-0 win over Brighton at Goodison Park on Saturday but it has emerged he may have damaged ligaments.
According to The Sun, ligament damage is a real possibility and the former Swansea City ace, therefore, faces 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.
