Dawson out for up to eight weeks
England defender Michael Dawson sprained his left knee ligaments and a left ankle ligament during last night's 4-0 victory over Bulgaria and the Tottenham Hotspur man could be out of action for up to eight weeks.
Dawson was carried off on a stretcher during last night's European Championship qualifier against Bulgaria after his leg collapsed horribly beneath him early in the second half.
The 26-year-old was released from the England squad this morning and returned to his club before undergoing a scan.
A statement on Spurs' official website read: "Scans today have revealed that Michael Dawson has sprained his left medial knee ligament and one of his left ankle ligaments.
"The defender has been withdrawn from the England squad after suffering the injuries during last night's 4-0 European Championship qualifying win against Bulgaria at Wembley and is expected to be out of action for six to eight weeks."
