West Ham's Anton Ferdinand did not break his leg on Under-21 duty.West Ham have been relieved to find that Anton Ferdinand did not break his leg whilst playing for England's Under-21 side.
Ferdinand picked up a nasty injury in the 3-1 win against Poland, and it was feared the player had broken his tibula.
However, West Ham's club doctor Shaun Howlett told the club's official website that the young defender had not broken any bones.
"Anton has seen the club consultant and there is no break," said Howlett. "He is still in severe pain."
Ferdinand will take comfort from the news, but will be dismayed to have picked up an injury after finally breaking through into the West Ham first team.
