Anton Ferdinand could face a lengthy lay-off after picking up an injury on international duty.West Ham United defender Anton Ferdinand could face a lengthy lay-off after picking up an injury on international duty.
Ferdinand was forced off in the first half of England's Under-21s 3-1 win over Poland.
The young defender was stretchered off after going down under a heavy challenge from Poland's Karol Gregorek.
England's medical team fear Ferdinand may have a suspected broken fibula and if that is the case, he faces a long spell on the sidelines.
Hammers boss Alan Pardew will be anxiously awaiting news on the full extent of the injury and hope that it is not as serious as first feared.
