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.
