England captain Leah Williamson is set to miss the women’s World Cup after her club Arsenal confirmed she had suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in a Women’s Super League match against Manchester United.

“Leah will now begin a period of rehabilitation and is set for an extended spell on the sidelines. She will undergo surgery in due course,” Arsenal said in a statement on Friday.

A stretcher was called for and while the 26-year-old was able to walk off the pitch, aided by two Arsenal physios, a scan has shown her to have suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, which normally takes at least six months to recover from.
