England trainer injured while celebrating goal

[WORLD CUP: Off the Post] Gary Lewin, the man charged with keeping England's players fit, has been sidelined for the rest of the World Cup after dislocating his ankle while celebrating England's goal in the 2-1 loss to Italy.

The 50-year-old Lewin jumped off the bench, after Daniel Sturridge scored a 37th minute momentary equalizer, and had a bad fall. The game was delayed for a few minutes until Lewin was stretchered off.

"That's a very sad moment for us," said England coach Roy Hodgson. "In celebrating the goal he jumped up and landed on a water bottle and dislocated his ankle. Very, very painful. He's been taken to hospital. I think the doctor was able to set it in and put it back at the side of the field. It's the end of the World Cup I'm afraid for Gary Lewin. A very sad moment for him and the team."

Lewin is being replaced by Steve Kemp, who had been assisting Lewin.

Lewin is famous for life-saving treatment on John Terry after he swallowed his tongue in a 2007 clash with Abou Diaby in an English Premier League game.

    This is a bit ironic for a trainer! Anyway, what about using crutches? He should still be able to get about and take care of the team no matter what! I used to be a college trainer and worked a lot while being injured!
